Clive Wearing can be called prisoner of consciousness. We find a proof in his diary. He used to write just one sentence “Now I’m awake” (sometimes using different words but the meaning was the same) but several times during the day. He tried to show that “now and only now” he’s conscious. But this state last just a few seconds, just a moment when he feel a little bit more alive. His life seems to be full of attempts at showing he is awake, conscious. But this consciousness is locked in just few seconds.
