    What is the evolutionary reason for having consciousness?

    I'll leave this as an open question with some clips from a few different people with different opinions. I'll have to put them in separate posts.

    First opinion is from Jordan Peterson.

    And the guy who probably has focused the most on this question, David Chalmers.

    This is a Ted Talk, so it's kinda long.
