Yes, this could reflect the DO process. Though without some initial experience of consciousness it’s difficult to see how intention could develop.
For example I could develop an intention to seek out ice-cream because I like the taste. But that intention can’t develop in a vacuum, it has to be based on a previous consciousness/experience of ice-cream.
It also raises the question of what the contionality in DO is like. Does it include the option of “When A increases, then so does B?”.
