What is co-consciousness?
See also co-awareness.
Co-consciousness is 2 or more alters sharing consciousness at the same time — as opposed to when someone becomes amnesiac and/or blacks out when someone else is fronting. You're usually also able to communicate internally with each other.
Co-consciousness has also been used for sharing the body's awareness of the Here & Now New, or being fully conscious/aware together.
Along with co-awareness, co-consciousness helps foster internal communication New because with high co-awareness and high co-consciousness, everyone is "on the same page" as far as knowing what's going on both internally and externally.
For example, a highly co-consious system will be aware that an appointment was made for the doctor. It doesn't prevent losing time by accident and missing the appointment, but everyone is aware of the appointment having been made.
With co-consciousness, residents share important information with one another, and basically maintain a continuous timestream so that system's time is mainly accounted for (as opposed to frequently losing time). Being co-conscious helps when more than one person wants to share Front as well. Being very highly co-conscious may allow nearly telepathic communications with one another in the system, and may allow memories and perceptions to bleed over into others in the system. It certainly does help residents share information within the system.
How does one develop co-awareness?
By working on the system internally, using communication techniques, building system trust, and perhaps re-working the internal landscape to foster collaborative spaces, holding meetings, and group gatherings internally rather than silos like walls between individual's spaces. Without trust, everyone puts up walls. To build trust, you also have to be trustworthy (As inside So outside).
