At the same time, consciousness is much faster than emotions and mind taken together. It can couple with different things by shifting from one object to another with incredible speed. I believe this speed is higher than the speed of light.
Man cannot see a bullet in the air as its speed exceeds his perception abilities considerably. As a bullet is so fast in its movement, man cannot see it even when it hits his body, so it always seems to the mind that there has never been any consciousness at all for the similar reason.
