We practice rock throwing

Foremost among those theories [quantum thought] is Integrated Information Theory, developed by neuroscientist Giulio Tononi at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It models a conscious system, be it brain, bot, or Borg, as a network of neurons or equivalent components. The theory says the system is conscious to the extent that its parts act together in harmony. The underlying premise is that conscious experience is psychologically unified—we feel our selves to be indivisible, and our sensations form a seamless whole—so the brain function that generates it should be unified, too.

Consciousness  is you watching your arm as you drill 20 throws with  rock.  We stood up, threw a rock and discovered dominant hand drills and practice to increase accuracy.  Consciousness started at that moment, and has not progressed much farther.
