Consciousness is the faculty of perceiving that which exists. It the process by which data is received from the sense organs about the external world, and recognized as such (that is: grasping that what is sensed is not part of consciousness or the perceptual process).

Consciousness is one of the axioms of Objectivist metaphysics, and can only be validated through a process of introspection.
