Consciousness is information integration across sensory modalities

Consciousness is information integration across sensory modalities | Mental | Scoop.it

"Consciousness is information integration across sensory modalities. The information is transferred by waves riding waves...riding waves. If you think of a wave as a cyclical event then you can start with your biological waves(cycles) like your circadian rhythm and work your way up to other waves like light and sound. Radio, for example is a sound wave hitch hiking on a light wave to get that information to your device. 

The brain works on a set of activation and inhibition waves riding on a set of noise waves for amplification. When your attention tunes to a specific wave you become aware of the information in that particular wave by the adjustment of your sensory apparatus."

ESP, remote viewing actually ‘complementary cognition?’

ESP, remote viewing actually ‘complementary cognition?’ | Mental | Scoop.it

We might think of alternative cognition or complementary cognition as just another perceptual resource to go along with our other five senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell as well as our emotions, feelings, dreams and thinking brain.

 

In fact, maybe we will discover that there are more than these modes of perception. Maybe we have the ability to perceive in ways that can be further identified and specified. (...)

 

There are also joint perceptions that involve using more than one sense or perceptual resource simultaneously. Integrating our sixth sense with the other five and other inner experiences may also be helpful, as well as very natural and normal. (...)

 

For example, remote viewing refers to some specific methods developed by the U.S. military and intelligence communities in Project STARGATE during the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. People were selected to be remote viewers in these efforts because they were believed to have better than average or quite good abilities in this area.
