Arising further from this notion of economic determinism11 is the concept of relations of production which transcends property relations; these reflect the relationship between the owners of the means of production (capitalists) and the workers (ploretariat). According to Timasheff, “These relations, according to Marx develop independently of human will. Moreover, the organization of production (called by Marx ‘the economic substructure of society` not only limits but also, in the final analysis, shapes the whole superstructure: political organization, law, religion, philosophy, art, literature, science, and morality itself.”12 The assertion that “relations develop” independently of human will suggests more mysterious force which propels individuals in collectivities known as society. However, Marx’s explanation of this phenomenon is made in the second postulate.

An example may help to clarify the nature of IIT’s explanation of consciousness. Our experience of a cue ball integrates its white color and spherical shape, such that these elements are inseparably fused. The fusion of these elements constitutes the structure of the experience: the experience is composed of them. The nature of the experience informs us about whiteness and spherical shape in a way that distinguishes it from other possible experiences, such as of a blue cube of chalk. This is just a description of the phenomenology of a simple experience (perhaps necessarily awkward, because it articulates the self-evident). Our brain generates the experience through neurons physically communicating with one another in systems linked by cause-effect power. IIT interprets this physical communication as the integration of information, according to the various constraints laid out in the postulates. The neurobiology and phenomenology converge.
More recently, social consciousness is linked to the collective self-awareness and experience of collectively shared social identity   . From this viewpoint, social consciousness denotes to conscious awareness of being part of an interrelated community of others. The “we feeling” or the “sense of us” may be experienced in members of various cultures and social groups. By the experience of collectively shared social identity, individuals may experience social unity. Social consciousness may also stimulate working towards a common goal.
