Primacy of Consciousness
The primacy of consciousness theory asserts that consciousness somehow creates reality.
Sometimes it takes the form of a divine consciousness that creates reality,
and sometimes it takes the form of each individual consciousness creating their own personal reality.
In either case, there is a contradiction.
To be conscious is to be aware (of something.)
One can not be aware without something to be aware of.
In other words, a consciousness without anything to be conscious of is not a consciousness.
Nor can a consciousness be aware of itself and claim to be independent of existence,
because if a consciousness is aware of itself, then it must itself exist and be an existent.
The truth is that Existence is primary.
