    ''There's an element of cognition involved initially''

    Initially? How is being conscious even possible without the process of cognition?

    ''How does this relate to these cognitive abilities?''

    Because cognition is the mental/brain process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses.

    This being the very essence of consciousness and mind, there can be no perception, thought, feeling, understanding, decision or action without it. It is through the cognitive process that we have our experience of the world and self and how we form our knowledge, beliefs or assumptions about it.

    The issue being; how do we sort fact from fiction, myth from reality, cultural and religious beliefs and assumptions in relation to how the world actually is regardless of our beliefs.....
