Consciousness is still much faster than emotions and the mind put together. It gets identified with this or that, moving from one object to another at an incredible speed. I assume its speed is faster than the speed of light.
The human eye cannot see a bullet in flight, because a bullet travels at a velocity significantly exceeding the speed of humans’ visual perception capabilities. Since a bullet is so fast in its flight, it can’t be seen even at the moment it strikes. For a similar reason, the mind remains under the impression that there is no such thing as consciousness and none has ever existed.
