Reality is an illusion, it is said because our mind is a great interpreter of its stimuli. Consciousness is not what we are, but what we think of ourselves.
It is enough to understand that the sensations conveyed by the different strings of our nerves reach the brain a little bit at the tail end. What we call consciousness would be the summary of the sum and sorting of the information received.

Cats hypnotize their masters so that a small virus could reach the felines’ intestines. Parasites cause butterflies to fly into the mouths of fish, and how many other living things act like ghosts ?
