Conscious of can lead to an infinite regress, but conscious being doesn't equate to an infinite request.

Yet that duality of perception is not entire, there doesn’t seem to be exact distinct perceptions and perceptive objects, its as if all perceptions are joined at the hip - so to speak. I'd say there is only a single focus [thing of perception] but that can see in the plural.
You are conscious of those three times or whatever, but you are conscious.
But these things are, supposedly, within consciousness. Now consciousness seems to focus on some of these things in consciousness.
For example, pick up a where's waldo book. You are having conscious experiences, but you focus on some of those things and those things you focus on become distinct, i.e. separate them from other things in conscious experience. You focus some attention on them, and become "conscious of" them.
When you speak of the information sandwich, its much more advanced than Berkleys synopsis.
You do not have direct control over the imagination, it happens for you, and your aware of two less than abstract processes on either side of it operating differently simultaniously.
I am about 90 percent certain what part of the brain your based in consciously.
I need you to look around in this internalized image of your mind, and tell me if you can spot a seeming paradox of a part of you seeing that same said part of you, without quite knowing how your seeing this paradox. Its a neurological feedbackloop in the find, but only a small percentage of the population experiences it consciously.
