Quantum Consciousness
    #4247910 - 06/02/05 02:23 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)


http://www.thymos.com/science/qc.html


the thread "Neurological Science And Evidence Of The Non-Existence Of A Soul" is what prompted me to post this. here is an excerpt :

Quote:

Many attempts have been made at explaining consciousness by reducing it to something else. To no avail. There is no way that our sensations can be explained in terms of particles. So, how does consciousness arise in matter? Maybe it doesn't arise, it is always there.

I am conviced that, no matter how detailed an account is provided of the neural processes that led to an action (say, a smile), that account will never explain where the feeling associated to that action (say, happiness) came from. No theory of the brain can explain why and how consciousness happens, if it assumes that consciousness is somehow created by some neural entity which is completely different in structure, function and behavior from our feelings.

From a logical standpoint, the only way out of this dead-end is to accept that consciousness must be a physical property

consciousness could be particles working together as one particle of the whole lot of particles, then controlled by "steering as one"
