This condition gives rise to possibilities of interaction, that in many lineages give rise to behaviour, cinhecimento in some language, and in currently one circumstance knowledge of the actions the organism is doing as well as much action that is structural and uncontrolled by the consciousness- especially our cellular goings on that give rise to that ability to know.
