The original meaning of Deus Ex Machina is the god in the machine, or god from the machine. It refers to the machine, or crane, that was used to lower an actor depicting a god onto the stage in a Greek drama. Over the time, deus ex machina came to mean “unexpected salvation”, that could be as a result of divine intervention or at least a solution that appears out of nowhere to resolve a problem. In this article we are redefining deus ex machina, the god in our machine, as consciousness. The aim of this article is firstly to offer a personal, experience-based perspective on consciousness and secondly, to offer some potential ways of exploring, living with and developing your connection and relationship with consciousness.
