Cool… but I think this is the wrong way around, consciousness ‘is’ attention; acting at many levels.  

A thought is a chain of patterns/ words/ images/ etc; your mind skips to the next predicted most likely pattern guided by attention; guided by the overall topic/ subject/ location/ etc.

We have thousands of intelligent networks exquisitely intertwined controlling posture, arm position, heart rate, etc and each has a current state of attention.  The combination/ sum of all the states of attention among these networks are what we experience as consciousness.  

Our mind has many facets, and the top layer/ consciousness network only has to deal with what each lower network is current paying attention too/ focusing on.  Your eyes are currently paying attention to this word in this sentence; guided by the overall task of reading this topic.  Your opinion on my comment is formed by your top layer executive network pattern matching on previous experience/ opinions; based on information fed in by the lower networks attention salience.
