A Multidisciplinary Approach to Mind and Consciousness

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Mind and Consciousness | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it

In the last 400 years physics has achieved great success, in theory and experimentation, determining the structure of matter and energy. The next great step in the evolution of science will be exploring the role of mind and consciousness in the universe, employing mathematics and fundamental theoretical constructs to yield specific predictions. Based on recent findings in biological autonomy, we propose to approach consciousness from the key aspect of decision-making. 


Via Alessandro Cerboni, Philippe Vallat
Philippe Vallat's insight:

Some quotes:

  • if biological decision-making occurs through the quantum-vacuum and the Universe as a whole can be regarded as conscious or equivalently living, then decision-making can also occur through the autonomy of a living Universe.
  • At present, it is generally conceded that we do not know how our minds interact with our bodies.
  • the phenomenon of intuition seems to be related to cellular and universal consciousness as basic ingredients of organismal mind
  • living organisms, including the human, are first of all systems of consciousness capable of making decisions.

Physics, spirituality and timeless life skills seem to be increasingly coming together. There should be mystery left for a while though!

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:45 PM

We are all one with the universe, regardless of our superficial or substantive differences.

 

A shame that this universe could raise so many people who are so incapable of living within it for a very long time.  Then again, isn't that what evolution works out over time?

We're a very young species and if we don't die off in the meantime, we will be stronger than before, especially if we identify, isolate and care for those who are not really fit for living, in spite of being otherwise functional, thanks to their brains and behaviors that prove to be dangerous to themselves and dangerous to others in the long and short terms.

 

It's time we take our mental health seriously, because we are all human and are all working with a second hand perspective of the world.  Some people's views are more accurate and helpful than others.

 

Think about it.

Consciousness and the Quantum: Surprising New Evidence

Consciousness and the Quantum: Surprising New Evidence | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it
Since it began in 1994, the Science of Consciousness conference in Tucson AZ, has become the world’s largest consciousness-focused conference. Founded by philosopher David Chalmers and anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff, its popularity and prestige reflects the growing academic recognition of the mystery presented by the conscious mind. Among the diverse views of its attendees and speakers, there is a decidedly growing openness toward deeper views of the mind. For many, including its founders, the question of consciousness may even penetrate to the heart of our scientific ontology. In recent years, scientists exploring the controversial terrain of psychic anomalies, like precognition and mind-matter interaction, have become a growing part of the discussion. This year IONS chief scientist Dean Radin gave a fascinating talk detailing the surprising findings of his prize-winning experiments exploring the relationship between mind and the quantum world. This one’s not to be missed.

If there’s one thing we can learn from Presidential election cycles, especially the strange one in 2016, it’s that people believe what they want to believe. It doesn’t matter if the beliefs are objectively true or false, as fact-checking websites demonstrate. Prejudices shape our reality and determine what we pay attention to and what we ignore. Because biases are inescapable, I constantly strive to be mindful and adjust my evaluation of evidence accordingly.

The Challenge of Consciousness

The Challenge of Consciousness | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it
Riccardo Manzotti: For most people “consciousness” will have various meanings and include awareness, self-awareness, thinking in language. But for philosophers and neuroscientists the crucial meaning is that of feeling something, having a feeling you might say, or an experience. It’s all very problematic. The truth is that we do not know what consciousness is. That’s why we’re talking about it as a problem.

How the brain produces consciousness in “time slices”

How the brain produces consciousness in “time slices” | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it

EPFL scientists propose a new way of understanding of how the brain processes unconscious information into our consciousness. According to the model, consciousness arises only in time intervals of up to 400 milliseconds, with gaps of unconsciousness in between. The driver ahead suddenly stops, and you find yourself stomping on your breaks before you even realize what is going on. We would call this a reflex, but the underlying reality is much more complex, forming a debate that goes back centuries: Is consciousness a constant, uninterrupted stream or a series of discrete bits – like the 24 frames-per-second of a movie reel? Scientists from EPFL and the universities of Ulm and Zurich, now put forward a new model of how the brain processes unconscious information, suggesting that consciousness arises only in intervals up to 400 milliseconds, with no consciousness in between. The work is published in PLoS Biology.

 

Consciousness seems to work as continuous stream: one image or sound or smell or touch smoothly follows the other, providing us with a continuous image of the world around us. As far as we are concerned, it seems that sensory information is continuously translated into conscious perception: we see objects move smoothly, we hear sounds continuously, and we smell and feel without interruption. However, another school of thought argues that our brain collects sensory information only at discrete time-points, like a camera taking snapshots. Even though there is a growing body of evidence against “continuous” consciousness, it also looks like that the “discrete” theory of snapshots is too simple to be true.

 

Michael Herzog at EPFL, working with Frank Scharnowski at the University of Zurich, have now developed a new paradigm, or “conceptual framework”, of how consciousness might actually work. They did this by reviewing data from previously published psychological and behavioral experiments that aim to determine if consciousness is continuous or discrete. Such experiments can involve showing a person two images in rapid succession and asking them to distinguish between them while monitoring their brain activity.

 

The new model proposes a two-stage processing of information. First comes the unconscious stage: The brain processes specific features of objects, e.g. color or shape, and analyzes them quasi-continuously and unconsciously with a very high time-resolution. However, the model suggests that there is no perception of time during this unconscious processing. Even time features, such as duration or color change, are not perceived during this period. Instead, the brain represents its duration as a kind of “number”, just as it does for color and shape.

 

Then comes the conscious stage: Unconscious processing is completed, and the brain simultaneously renders all the features conscious. This produces the final “picture”, which the brain finally presents to our consciousness, making us aware of the stimulus.
