Introduction to the Science of Consciousness. Consciousness is not magic!

Introduction to the Science of Consciousness

This is my first blog on the study of consciousness, as part of a series of posts planned. I feel very lucky, both to work as a research scientist at the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, and to have been given the chance to publish a book on consciousness for a general audience, where I describe the current scientific and medical aspects of the field, and outline my own views on the purpose of consciousness, and how our brains generate our experiences. But hopefully this series of posts will give me a separate, less formal, more interactive (lots of comments, please!)

Outlet for my passion to communicate the science of consciousness. It is easy to view consciousness as a kind of magic, either in the name of religion and souls, or by how alien it at first appears to science. Consciousness is a vitally important scientific field Consciousness is in many ways the most important question remaining for science.

Murphy, Guest GA=440Hz: Not Quite Music to My Ears Humankind is the largely unwitting victim of a frequency war on our consciousness that has been waged for decades, if not millennia. The goal has clearly been to keep us as gullible and subservient as possible, through multifarious means. In modern history in particular, there has been what Dr.

Unexpected Risks of Intelligent Infrastructure

It was to convey the fact that not everything connected to the Internet generates data via humans tapping on keyboards. Today, these “things” now include elements of our critical national infrastructure via what are called SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems or ICS (Industrial Control Systems). Unfortunately, these systems can be just as vulnerable to attack as our laptops. Security through obscurity has helped to protect these systems until recently as they are not obvious to regular Internet users. However, there is no longer anywhere to hide. Lack of direct connection to the Internet is no guarantee of security either. Graham Hancock - The War on Consciousness BANNED TED TALK.

Are Smart People Getting Smarter?

First popularized by the political scientist James Flynn, the effect refers to the widespread increase in IQ scores over time. Some measures of intelligence — such as performance on Raven’s Progressive Matrices in Des Moines and Scotland — have been increasing for at least 100 years. What’s most peculiar is how scores have increased: 1) Scores have increased the most on the problem-solving portion of intelligence tests. 2) Verbal intelligence has remained relatively flat, while non-verbal scores continue to rise. 3) Performance gains have occurred across all age groups. 4) The rise in scores exists primarily on those tests with content that does not appear to be easily learned.

Six Thinking Hats. Six Thinking Hats is a book by Edward de Bono which describes a tool for group discussion and individual thinking involving six colored hats.

Six Thinking Hats

"Six Thinking Hats" and the associated idea parallel thinking provide a means for groups to plan thinking processes in a detailed and cohesive way, and in doing so to think together more effectively.[2] Underlying principles[edit] Jacob Barnett,12, with higher IQ than Einstein develops his own theory of relativity.
