I think we can say Clive is a ‘prisoner of consciousness’, especially if he says it himself. It shows how he feels. He is conscious and aware of many things, but just for around 7 seconds, then he forgets it and has to experience it all over again. It’s like a vicious circle. That must be terrible.
Clive can’t make normal decisions and he can’t think, yet he is conscious all the time. I think this is what makes him the prisoner of his own consciousness.
