The term “higher consciousness” can sound mystical and possibly irritating to some folks, but it shouldn’t. It just captures how we see things when we go beyond our own egos. In a beautifully animated video produced by his project, The School of Life, philosopher Alain de Botton explains how we can look at the concept of higher consciousness from a neurological perspective, without the need of drugs or spiritual mumbo jumbo. The video was made in collaboration with the team at Mad Adam Films. For more amazingness from The School of Life visit and visit their shop HERE.
