Sergey Nikolaevich Volkov, Olesya Sergeevna Zharova
Abstract: In the article « The metaphysics of consciousness. Interaction between animate and inanimate nature through the human consciousness» we consider the questions of consciousness’ evaluation in aspects of ethnical and social manifestations. It is suggested that the world of animate and inanimate nature is linked because of the conscious human activity. Examples of the existence of mythical characters in a modern folklore are given that can be seen as a manifestation of consciousness, and the characters themselves are the essence of the manifestation of the subtle nature of consciousness. As a hypothesis the authors define the subtle nature of consciousness as a substratum of animate and inanimate nature and see the interaction of these two things thanks to consciousness. The authors come to the problem of abnormal processes in the world and their perception due to the specifics of the conscious human activity.
