1. The Problem of Consciousness Conventional explanations portray consciousness as an emergent property of classical computer-like activities in the brain's neural networks. The prevailing views among scientists in this camp are that 1) patterns of neural network activities correlate with mental states, 2) synchronous network oscillations in thalamus and cerebral cortex temporally bind information, and 3) consciousness emerges as a novel property of computational complexity among neurons. However, these approaches appear to fall short in fully explaining certain enigmatic features of consciousness, such as: Figure 1. Figure 2. How do neural firings lead to thoughts and feelings? The basic idea is that the mind is a computer functioning in the brain (brain = mind = computer).

Chuck Fromm is publisher of Worship Leader Magazine, a Christian music resource that combines biblical wisdom and best practices for worship, and provides added educational and congregational resources through its associated educational services, according to its website.
However, the Fromms insist that their weekly meetings are not affiliated with a church, nor are they seeking to establish a church.
