English term or phrase:Expression in a quote \"We cannot get behind consciousness\"
Max Planck has a famous quote about consciousness that goes:
"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Every thing that we talk about, every thing that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness."
expression in a quote \\\"we cannot get behind consciousness\\\"
Get behind consciousness
Explanation: Someone online argued against this specific quote, and so he answered back by saying "there is no reason we can not get behind consciousness. Modern sciences in the field of brain research and AI will someday find out how consciousness operates, and we already know a part of it."
Now according to this,I'd say the translation would be,
ليس بمقدورنا أو باستطاعتنا معرفة كيفية حدوث آو طريقة عمل الادراك
It's like saying get behind the wheel,as in since you do know how to drive a car, you do the driving.But in Planck's case, he claims that consciousness is behind it all and we do not know how it does so.
