In my opinion Clive Wearing is (if my understanding is correct) prisoner of unconsciousness,not consciousness because his problem is not that he is all the time conscious but he is unconscious. I mean he knows some facts like who is his wife or some music to play but he is not able to deeply process informations information, he doesn’t know where he lives, doesn’t remember important facts that happend to him after his illness. In fact, he can’t watch or read because he wouldn’t remember what happend one moment ago. So that’s why in my opinion a “prisoner of unconsciousness” is a proper name for Clive Wearing’s situation.
