On the other hand, as a member of human society, as a component in the industrial culture (or at least of a relatively self-absorbed intellectualistic sect therein) and the force it posesses for discovery and change, I view the human consciousness as a staggeringly incredible thing.
Then again, I'm one of those people who anthropomorphizes my pets. ;) (Animism? Me? Heh.)
I suppose I assign my wonder primarily to the ability of the human mind - and any other similar force - to create. Creativity, in all its forms, is a wonderful thing.
Although "wonderful", it should be noted, does not necessarily mean "good".
Okay. Big words. Back to Sociology.
EDIT: *Bloody*. Can't get into credit union site. Bank stole my money! Scandal! o.O
SECOND EDIT: Oh, there it goes. Hey, where the hell's my money, you bastards? >.<
