mtmeme's curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:10 AM

This series of videos is also online. The interviews are grouped around single questions answered by several different people. Some questions: Is information fundamental? How are brains conscious? Is free will an illusion? This organization facilitates browsing and following questions from different perspectives.  Wonderful resource!

Functionalism and mental boundaries

Functionalism and mental boundaries | Wisdom 1.0 | Scoop.it

According to extended cognitivists, the mind’s location is only partly in the head. In addition, extended cognitivists have argued, the mind is located in parts of the world outside the body.

 

Moreover, the possibility of extended cognition suggests new lines of research within the domain of social cognition. If minds extend, the boundaries that define the units of social interaction become less certain. Perhaps minds overlap. If, as some extended cognitivists believe, features of the environment comprise parts of a cognitive system, then a single piece of the world might constitute a piece of distinct cognitive systems. More dramatically, perhaps parts of a mind of one individual may be located within the mind of another. Insofar as extended cognition can make such possibilities plausible, social psychologists will need to re-interpret the nature of social interaction, will need to re-examine how the motivations and emotions of a single agent can influence an extended cognitive system, and so on.

Stephen Hawking: So Here's How It All Happened without God: Scientific American

Stephen Hawking: So Here's How It All Happened without God: Scientific American | Wisdom 1.0 | Scoop.it

Even some of the more faithful might have wondered over the last few days whether there truly is a God-

Even some of the more faithful might have wondered over the last few days whether there truly is a God.

Famed physicist Stephen Hawking would like to help. Let's imagine there isn't, seems to be his preference.

Indeed, in a speech at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., on Tuesday night, he made jokes about God's supposed power and omnipresence.

"What was God doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell for people who asked such questions?" asked Hawking, clearly not afraid of meeting a reddish man with a fork and a tail.

Being a scientist, Hawking has faith only in scientific explanations.

As NBC News reports, he discounted a repeating Big Bang Theory (even though he's appeared on the show).

Instead, he thinks: "We are the product of quantum fluctuations in the very early universe."

I certainly feel like the product of quantum fluctuations on many days of the week, don't you?
