If consciousness were merely a byproduct of our brain then there should be a way to measure it and master it. So far we haven't been able to and it's just something we can only talk about philosophically and literally EVERYTHING we know about it right now is based off assumptions. We assume everyone else has this sense of self. We assume you don't have it if you're a veggie. We assume you have the same sense of self if it goes away and comes back or we assume it's a different one.

We have theories and beliefs. No proofs. Heck, there's barely any evidence if any.
