  Abstract Decision space represents all the choices (options) one has access to (from the intellectual or being level) at any given time. These do not include choices that are theoretically or potentially available but one has no immediate awareness of, or access to, them. To be conscious, one must have a finite decision space. Within the normal person, the decision space contains competing options that represent all the drivers of choice within the awareness (will, intent, intellect, ego, belief, consciousness quality, attitude, emotion and feeling) all simmering within a pungent soup of fear and love. These drivers of an IUOC’s choice represent the force behind how it chooses to interpret whatever data it receive from the data-stream and then how and why it chooses a specific response to that interpretation. Choice cannot be completely removed or eliminated from a conscious individual. If choice is entirely eliminated, the individual is no longer conscious. Will (goals), intents and choices are not made exclusively at the intellectual level. The intellectual level and the being level, within a normal or typical individual, work together to produce goals, intents, and choices -- however, either level may be dominant in directing the choice. One may try to give up personal responsibility for making a choice, or try to assign that responsibility elsewhere, but the choice remains and it remains yours (the whole IUOC) to make or not. Not making a specific choice is a choice. A choice once made usually alters the size and content of the decision space from which it was chosen as well as the decisions spaces of others who are interactively involved with the chooser. Consciousness is an interactive multiplayer game.
