No bzackey, consciousness does not arise from the dead animals you have buried in your stomach. Well, in your case perhaps it does...

Well, given that consciousness arises from physical phenomena in the brain and nervous system (which is comprised of meat), it can be said to be a meat byproduct. Unless you hold Cartesian dualism to be true, of course.
