Elements of life:
1. Love (tendency to keep on experiencing interactions forever)
2. Identity (set of memory)
3. Personality (way of defining what's lovely and what's not)
which all made up:
1. Sensoric system
2. Analytical system
3. Control system / binding / network to bind the systems
In other words one is conscious when the person could define his/her/its own problems.
When we obey the law, we are not denying ourselves as living beings, we obey the law because we want to participate in integrated solutions that would help us with our problems.
The law that addresses real problems and is integratedly working and mutual, sometimes doesn't have the same priority with us... but it certainly addresses real problems, problems that might brought us even more trouble in the future when they are not well solutioned.
So obeying the law is really human.
