If, and its a really big If, the scientists got together and tackled Science as a whole, a holistic trunk of the Trees of Life and Knowledge, they might notice that theres only a very small thing left out of the Science, and only one thing to add to the Sentience. You have to take the extra C away from the Science, and put it somewhere in the letters remaining in Sentience, which will be ENTE. Wherever the C needs to go, I dont know, but someone will know. I know the name of the one who gave me all that inspiration, and his name begins with R. (That matters only to me, it doesnt have to matter to anyone else.) Then, youll have three Sciences working together to get the Lego replaced by something altogether more universally valuable, with Physics at the head of the committee waiting with the pens and the languages to choose from. For mathematics certainly has its fans, and it seems the Universe is one of them, for it does indeed seem to be everywhere, and Fibonacci had a field day among the ...
Discovered on the skin, in the blood stream, in the intestines, or inside the hair, germs lead to a great number of disorders. When severe disorders are examined in the lab they locate that every severe Persistent disease is connected with the existence of pleiomorphic micro organism or mould. These harm the immune perform that normally protects the mobile from foreign invaders. When the microbes or mold invade a cell and decrease the immune safety, they permit toxins and contagions to enter the cell and injury the DNA, allowing for really serious ailment to originate ...
Diarrhoea occurs in many illnesses. The aspect of the stools, associated symptoms, the patients medical history, countries visited and medicines being taken all help to identify the causes.. These various causes include a number of drugs that expose patients to acute or chronic diarrhoea, appearing within varying time frames and of very diverse intensity or severity. This applies to some antibiotics, but also to oral antidiabetic drugs, rheumatological and anti-ulcer medication, neurological and psychiatric treatments, anti-cancer drugs etc. As a rule, the consequences are minimal. But sometimes they result in severe disorders, such as dehydration, especially in patients at risk (the elderly and infants). Anti-cancer drugs and some antibiotics expose patients to particularly severe diarrhoea, and patients should be informed and advised to consult a physician, especially if the diarrhoea is accompanied by mucus, blood or a fever.. For some drugs with a narrow therapeutic range (i.e. the ...
Most of what is going on in the name of development is adversely affecting the Labour-Industry-Environment balance. Peoples lives and environment are often subjected to severe disorder or disaster. There is huge wastage of social resources. Nagarik Mancha believes that not all that goes on in the name of development are inevitable. Mancha was formed by some citizens who felt affected and hence concerned about these problems.. One among its many objectives is to know and try to understand these problems and the truth that is usually hidden behind, and to communicate this knowledge and understanding to the people at large. The Mancha also attempts at the same time, to find out alternative answers, both short term and long term, to these problems.. The Mancha tries to help any initiative or movement to protect and expand civic rights or rights of working people. Development in whose interest, at whose cost, at what cost and whether the ongoing paradigm of development is ...

The term was proposed in 2007, by American doctor of Medicine Robert Lanza in his article of The American Scolar titled A new theory of the universe. According Lanza, biology is above the other sciences such as physics and chemistry and life creates the universe instead of the other way around. Two years later, Lanza with astronomer and author Bob Berman published a book entitled Biocentrism: How life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe. In this book the authors claim that the space and time are forms of animal perception, rather than external physical objects. Lanza wrote that : ...
Predicting recovery of consciousness in patients who survive their coma but evolve to a vegetative state (recently coined unresponsive wakefulness syndrome) remains a challenge. Most previous prognostic studies have focused on the acute coma phase. A novel outcome scale (combining behavioural, aetiology, electroencephalographic, sleep electroencephalographic and somatosensory evoked potential data) has been proposed for patients in subacute unresponsive wakefulness syndrome. The scales clinical application awaits validation in a larger population.
Poster (2017, March). INTRODUCTION: Following severe acute brain damage, patients typically evolve from coma to an unresponsive wakefulness syndrome/vegetative state (UWS/VS; wakefulness without awareness) and later to a ... [more ▼]. INTRODUCTION: Following severe acute brain damage, patients typically evolve from coma to an unresponsive wakefulness syndrome/vegetative state (UWS/VS; wakefulness without awareness) and later to a minimally conscious state (MCS; fluctuating but consistent nonreflex behaviors). MCS is subcategorized in MCS+ (i.e., command following) and MCS- (i.e., visual pursuit, localization of noxious stimulation or contingent behaviours). Reliable and consistent interactive communication and/or functional use of objects indicate the next boundary - emergence from MCS (EMCS). To date, there is still no reliable predictive model of recovery from the UWS/VS and the MCS. A better understanding of patients outcome would help in decisions regarding patients care and ...
PhD student (FNRS : clinicien chercheur doctorant).. Promoters : Pr. A. Mouraux; Pr. S. Laureys (Liège Coma Science Group). As a neurorehabilitation clinician, I am in charge of a care unit for patients with prolonged disorder of consciousness (i.e. patients with unresponsive wakefulness syndrome or in minimally conscious state). The aim of my research project is to understand how these severely brain injured patients are able to perceive pain using non-invasive methods such as surface EEG recordings. These investigations should also be of interest to develop a novel approach to study the relationship between pain perception and consciousness.. ...
Many theistic apologists have claimed that the existence of non-physical consciousness proves the existence of God. However, this is by no means obvious. In contemporary philosophy, the most prominent defenders of non-physical consciousness are atheists. This is true of both John Searle and David Chalmers. Other examples of nontheistic philosophers who reject the physicalist view of consciousness are Thomas Nagel and Paul Draper. At the popular level this view has been promoted by Sam Harris. What theists need is an argument that consciousness is evidence for the existence of God, but they rarely bother to try to give such an argument. Stewart Goetz and Charles Taliaferro have claimed to present such an argument, but they seem to be stuck in the same confusions as other theists. For example, they talk about restrict[ing] ourselves... to the explanatory framework of an ideal physics with mass and energy, which misses the point, because this is not the approach taken by philosophers such as ...

My old friend Andy and I have two theories for what accounts for consciousness: Andy says his impressionistic idea of consciousness is that it is characteristic of sophisticated nervous systems and thus diminishes down the phylogenetic scale. In his view, consciousness is a consequence of a nervous systems myriad sensory input, making any creature down the phylogenetic scale less conscious than those up that scale. My only argument with his theory is that it is too narrow. For me, consciousness feels a great deal deeper. I think of consciousness, especially the synchronous, spontaneous moment-to-moment experience side of consciousness, as a consequence of quantum weirdness. Deep down quantum non-locality tunes the individuals consciousness into all of it - cosmic consciousness I guess youd say. Isnt this why, as chapter 21 puts it, As a thing the way is Shadowy, indistinct.. Andy maintains that the more sophisticated the nervous system, the more conscious. Conversely, I say everything ...

Conscious-Robots.com is an Internet portal dedicated to the scientific research in Machine Consciousness. This field of artificial intelligence is very much related to cognitive robotics, and the following terms are often used as synonyms: Artificial Consciousness, Synthetic Consciousness and Robot Consciousness. Although much more detailed definitions can be found in these web pages, we could briefly define Machine Consciousness as the research on producing consciousness in an artificial device (like a robot) using engineering techniques. Understanding human consciousness is a great challenge, hence Machine Consciousness problem is even harder. There is no doubt that these problems have to be addressed from multiple disciplines. This site aim to follow this multidisciplinary approach including information and resources from many fields, from philosophy to genetic programming ...

Your nature is the consciousness, in which the whole world wells up, like waves in the sea. ~ Ashtavakra Gita. Consciousness is the greatest mystery ever encountered by humanity.. Mystics of all traditions have described consciousness as the ground of being in which the dance of life unfolds. Each tradition has developed different approaches and practices to explore the nature of consciousness, the paths of meditation, inquiry, prayer, art, mantras and movement…. Today the main lens through which our culture understands reality is science. For the past century science has viewed consciousness as something generated by the brain, yet there are major problems with this assumption. A new scientific paradigm is emerging which views consciousness as fundamental. Consciousness cannot be explained in terms of the existing laws of space, time, mass and energy. A new science has to be developed, a science that can accept consciousness as universal while investigating the connections between the ...

The Nature of Consciousness: Philosophical Debates. Ned Block. 1stPublisher: Bradford BookFormat: Paperback. Intended for anyone attempting to find their way through the large and confusingly interwoven philosophical literature on consciousness, this reader brings together most of the principal texts in philosophy (and a small set of related key works in neuropsychology) on consciousness through 1997, and includes some forthcoming articles. Its extensive coverage strikes a balance between seminal works of the past few decades and the leading edge of philosophical research on consciousness.As no other anthology currently does, The Nature of Consciousness provides a substantial introduction to the field, and imposes structure on a vast and complicated literature, with sections covering stream of consciousness, theoretical issues, consciousness and representation, the function of consciousness, subjectivity and the explanatory gap, the knowledge argument, qualia, and monitoring conceptions of ...
Beyond time and space. Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company.. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe. It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around.. Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us like turtles with shells. meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist.. The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist. It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body. In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local.. Lanza also believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously. In one universe, the body can be dead. And in another it continues to exist, absorbing consciousness, which migrated ...
Assigning Consciousness. Even when DOS is highly optimized, LB does not assign consciousness to sensory data, but goes through the extra step of passing on intensity values sent to it by sensory receptors to VP, based on which, VP assigns consciousness.. The reason for the same is that besides sensory data, which are physical phenomena, judgements are also needed for intramural communication, i.e. thoughts, which are mental phenomena, where VP needs to consider different aspects of intramural communication using its capabilities of utilizing past data and future projections in order to make decisions and finalize executions, and thus, need consciousness to be assigned. In simple words, VP needs to assign consciousness to both, physical sensations and thoughts.. To identify them separately while explaining their workings, when VP assigns consciousness to sensory data, I will call it Sensory Consciousness, when it assigns to intramural communication, I will call it Intramural ...
An exciting and emerging area of study, Consciousness Studies focus on the transformative experiences, practices and beliefs of many cultural, religious, spiritual, and psychotherapeutic traditions. The Consciousness Studies Concentration, available to students enrolled in any of the degree options within the Goddard Graduate Institute, is an interdisciplinary education that draws upon a number of disciplines, including the neurosciences, philosophy of mind, anthropology of consciousness, Jungian psychology, religious studies, psychology, the arts and the humanities.. Students pursuing the Consciousness Studies Concentration develop an integrated understanding of the origin, evolution, and expansion of human consciousness. The emphasis at Goddard is on developing an interdisciplinary approach to the study of consciousness that is open to a range of perspectives from the scientific to the transpersonal.. Our integral approach to the study of consciousness honors equally:. ...
The claim that language is in principle inaccessible to consciousness may look counterintuitive but is not as challenging as finding an answer to the subsequent question of why that must be the case -- if language is a function that is in the service of consciousness and we cannot imagine why language would have existed at all without the existence of consciousness. On the one hand, language is the cognitive capacity that seems best fit to support consciousness in its monitoring and control functions; on the other hand, language learning (learning the rules of ones own language), language structure and language processing turn out upon closer scrutiny to be in principle inaccessible to consciousness. I present a set of arguments in favour of the thesis that language is in principle inaccessible to consciousness on the basis of a set of asymmetries between sentence structure and the structure of consciousness. If the thesis in question is on the right track, we have to face two basic problems. ...
My name is Stephanie Richardson. Ive been using the tools of Access Consciousness since the moment I heard the first tool in 2011. One of the things that inspires me about Access Consciousness is that it allows me to address the practical, everyday things that come up... but it also allows me to address the issues that are going on in the world that I care about. So many of the leaders, teachers and masters on the planet talk about us needing a change in consciousness, a change in consciousness is required for us to survive and flourish, they say.... Access Consciousness gives anyone who uses the tools the possibilitiy to have that change in consciousness for themselves. That change in consciousness is as contagious as a smile and the tools are as simple as asking a question and having the willingness to make a new choice.. My life was fine... Id done a lot of work... but I was ready for something greater... what about you?. ...

A great way to understand consciousness is to study those that increase consciousness in others.. A mother who cajoles and exchanges smiles with her baby. A teacher who transmits knowledge. A neurologist who awakens a comatose by electrostimulations. A mystic who shares holist ideas.. There are many ways to define an increase in consciousness. Is there anything in common in all these ways that helps us to understand what consciousness is fundamentally?. Each way is anchored in a different level of information. This is why the consciences they describe appear so dissimilar. The only thing in common is the actual increase in consciousness, regardless of the medium of information.. This common feature is the addition of additional levels of information. We readily call this phenomenon an enlargement of consciousness. But its more of a stack. Higher-level information synthesizes previous ones.. The baby includes more elaborate signals from the mother. The teacher allows his students to access a ...
Would it be worth summarising what the issues are about this topic? Ill have a go, and perhaps we can reach some consensus:. 1) The epimestological question of whether artificial consciousness is possible or whether the term is an oxymoron, i.e. that by definition consciousness cannot be artificial because it wouldnt then be consciousness at all. To get around this, we either have to remove the need for thought from the definition of consciousness or change the title of the piece to simulated concsiousness.. 2) The question of whether consciousness or indeed artificial consciousness necessarily requires a predictive capability, as suggested in the original article. Evidence from alternative sources should be provided to justify the original claim, and I have suggested that the alternative of anticipation should be included to cover his requirement.. 3) The question of whether it is possible to define an average human for the purposes of setting criteria against which to measure the ...
In this series, DaBen teaches you how to greatly expand your consciousness and become aware of a greater you that spans many dimensions, and leads you to experience states that have been described by others as enlightened. You will be guided to explore omni-presence where you can put your consciousness many places at once, have multiple perspectives, and move into states of flow and radiance that can transform all the energies about you, including your thoughts, emotions, body, and situations in your life. It is also highly recommended that you complete the Radiance: Self-Exciting course prior to taking the Building Consciousness series. This is a wonderful course to expand your Light Body Consciousness skills, and can be taken before or after the Light Body Consciousness courses. Prerequisites To understand DaBens instructions and experience the wonderful expanded states of consciousness he offers, you need to be an Awakening Your Light Body graduate with knowledge of the 7 vibrational ...
WHAT IS CONSCIOUSNESS ? Consciousness is described as a state of knowing, or awareness, or recognizing the existence, truth, or fact of something. What is that something that is known or recognized by Consciousness ? I propose to explore the contents of Consciousness to answer the question of what is Consciousness ? CONSCIOUSNESS IS A…
Of course, ultimately, when your soul raises its consciousness enough it will reintegrate with its Over-Soul. Thereby ceasing Incarnation, becoming a seamless part of its Over-Soul, and contributing to the evolution of the Over-Souls consciousness - which is good because your Over-Soul is essentially thehigher/wider level of you!. NOTE: Much of the information in this article comes from The Ascension Papers - Book 1 andBook 2. If you find this article interesting then I highly recommend these books and other information produced by its author, Zingdad.. What Are Densities of Consciousness?. You may be wondering where the term densities which was used in the title of this article comes from and how it applies to levels of consciousness. Density is a term that has come into common usage to refer to the levels/states of consciousness. The origin of this term is a bit obscure and confusing. Densities are related to the level of consciousness, and the frequency level, at which a reality is created ...

There is one sense in which our consciousness, say of our surroundings, can vary continuously: the content of the consciousness can vary pretty much continuously in terms of the level of detail and discrimination. After waking up, I come to be aware more determinately of what is around me, after all. This is an uninteresting (from the point of view of my present interest) form of continuous variation of consciousness. The interesting form of continuous variation would be where the content is fixed, but somehow the degree of consciousness varies. It is hard to imagine what fixed-content variation in the level of consciousness would be like. I would be aware of exactly the same detail, but differently. More vibrantly? More focusedly or more concentratedly? Focus and concentration are a promising start. But it seems to me that less or concentrated focused consciousness does at least tend to have a lower level of detail of content. When I concentrate on a part of the visual field, I see more detail ...

In recent years, the primary focus of many philosophers of mind (though not Fodor) has shifted to consciousness. And a growing number of philosophers, attempting to exploit some of the advances of the previous decades work on intentionality, are advocating representational theories of consciousness. Representationalists have spent much time defending their characteristic thesis (RT) and have devoted much effort to some of the peculiar problems facing theories of consciousness (examples: inverted spectrum, absent qualia). They have expended precious little energy answering more basic questions like What makes a conscious state a conscious state?, What conditions are necessary and sufficient for consciousness?, and What can be said on behalf of the naturalization of consciousness? It is my suspicion, fuelled by the remarks of Armstrong, Lycan and Levine quoted in the paper, that representationalists have thought that these problems are solved (or at least reduced to the corresponding ...
Chalmers takes these facts literally: our statements about consciousness are part of our cognitive life, and therefore can be explained quite naturally, just like any other behavior. I speak about my feelings the same way i raise a hand. There is a physical process that explains why i do both. It also happens that we are conscious, not just that we talk about it, and that part cannot be explained (yet). If we had a detailed understanding of the brain, we could predict when someone would utter the words I feel pain. So Chalmers believes that our talk about consciousness will be explained just like any other cognitive process, just like any other bodily process. This is not the same as explaining the conscious feelings themselves, and it leaves open the option that feelings are but an accessory, an evolutionary accident, a by-product of our cognitive life with no direct relevance to our actions ...
This article explains the importance and the necessity of a conceptually new method of rehabilitation of children in reduced state of consciousness after severe brain injury. During the period from 2014 to 2015 29 children in a reduced state of consciousness have been treated in the Clinical and Research Institute of Urgent Pediatric Surgery and Trauma. 14 children ages 7 to 17 have been passed neurorehabilitation course in an approach of clinical anthropocentrism. Using comparative method the authors present the results of the recovery process of working with children in reduced state of consciousness, with the use of clinical and anthropocentric approach and standard comprehensive rehabilitation. The results of the two groups of patients were evaluated on the parameters: 1. Level of consciousness - GCS, Scale of Dobrokhotova-Zaitsev, Scale communicative activity (SCABLn). 2. Motor opportunities - The scale of the Committee for Medical Research (for R.Van der Ploeg, 1984), Scale of spasticity ...
It is not difficult for human being to realize that the older a child is the higher his level of consciousness is. That is because childs level of consciousness generally is beneath the one of the adults. Once a person becomes 18 years, it will be difficult for others to determine his consciousness level.. Drugs and alcohol affect the mind access to the knowledge, which an individual has. By using those kinds of stuffs the access time to the knowledge becomes also slower. Those stuffs might be a fast way to decrease your consciousness level temporarily. A conscious living being is aware of his existence, but that could be different by animals. Conscious feeling grows gradually by learning and that growth has no limits. Every unit of knowledge contributes to our consciousness.. I saw once how a fabric produced chickens. It was very impressive, because the chickens from the moment that they come out from the egg had a planned life until they were ready for production. The question is, do chickens ...
So humans seem to have this subjective state of being we call consciousness. What about other animals, insects, or creatures we see around Earth? Are they conscious? Can they perceive?. Many think so, for the right reasons. The result of these contemplations has led many to believe that consciousness is one. When they say this, they mean that feeling of perceiving, this ability to perceive, is all connected, in that we as humans can see each other, bats can use sound waves to know were here, snakes can sense our warmth, and they can sense each other, to an extent. We may perceive it differently, but we all perceive something, and this state of perception is what we call consciousness. This is a common philosophical view of consciousness in that all sentient beings can perceive, and therefore consciousness is connected, its one.. While this is one plausible view, I had the opposite realization - while it is all connected in the sense mentioned above, its infinitely separated. As humans ...
In his Light Body Consciousness courses, (LB941-LB945) DaBen leads you to experience states of consciousness that have been called awakened where you leave behind time and space, entering into the Allness of the present moment. You will explore many states of consciousness where you can directly experience the Self that you are beyond your three-dimensional self. You gain an increasing awareness of a greater You and the Immense Space that you have consciousness in. With this awareness you can change what you experience and draw to you in your daily life. These are truly transformative courses that will change how you perceive the world, yourself, other people, and reality itself. Most people have described their experiences of light and energy, of expanded realizations and new senses as priceless, practical, and a gift of consciousness from Source they are deeply grateful to have realized.. The five levels teach you invaluable skills for moving into higher dimensions and states of ...
It is the abrupt quality of how the process of altering of state of consciousness occurs (which often goes hand by hand with the phenomenon of discontinuous memory [Spivak, 1988]) that allowed C. T. Tart to speak about the discreteness of states of consciousness (and, hence, the introduction of the term discrete state of consciousness [Tart, 1975]). For example, the state of dreaming is such a discrete state in which one tends to be unaware of the dreaming quality of experience. However, as V. V. Nalimov (1982) has pointed out in his theoretical research, any discreteness (discontinuity) dialectically involves continuity; and when the state of dreaming is integrated into the continuum of consciousness the subject gets access to lucid dreaming in which he or she becomes aware that he sleeps and witnesses a dream (Wilber, 2000; LaBerge, 1985). It seems that this supports the J. A. Hobsons proposal that, according to his neurophysiological states of consciousness model, lucid dreaming ...
The mind-body problem has been in the news lately. A couple of weeks ago, Time magazine had a special issue on mind and brain, with a lead story by Steven Pinker on the mystery of consciousness, along with brief sidebar articles on consciousness by Bernard Baars, Dan Dennett, Antonio Damasio, Michael Gazzaniga, Colin McGinn. Now the New Yorker has just published a long article by Larissa MacFarquhar on Pat and Paul Churchland (not online, unfortunately), with a lot of nice biographical and sociological background and some philosophical discussion along the way. I talked to Larissa for this article a year or two ago, when it was a general article on the problem of consciousness, and a fair amount of philosophical background on consciousness has survived into the final version.
This new way of thinking about consciousness has been spreading throughout the physics community at an exponential rate within the past few years. Considering consciousness as an actual state of matter would be huge, considering the fact that modern day definitions of matter require a substance to have mass, which consciousness does not have. What it does have, however, is some sort of effect on our physical material world, and the extent of this effect and how far it goes is the next step for science.. The quantum double slit experiment is a very popular experiment used to examine how consciousness and our physical material world are intertwined. It is a great example that documents how factors associated with consciousness and our physical material world are connected in some way.. One potential revelation of this experience is that,. ...
Otto Warmbier, the former North Korean detainee returned to the US, died at 2:20 pm, his parents reported Monday. He had suffered severe brain damage while in detention, doctors said.
The general thesis of this paper is that drug experience can be understood only if it is viewed as an altered state of consciousness rather than as a pharmacological event. A subthesis is that this approach will make it possible for society to reduce significantly the problems now associated with the use of psychoactive drugs. All of us experience occasional states of consciousness different from our ordinary waking state. Obviously, sleep is such a state. Less obviously, perhaps, are daydreaming and movie watching unusual modes of awareness. Other distinct varieties of conscious states are trance, hypnosis, psychosis, general anesthesia, delirium, meditation, and mystic rapture. In our country, until recently, there has been no serious investigation of altered states of consciousness as such, because most Western scientists who study the mind regard consciousness as annoyingly nonmaterial and, therefore, inaccessible to direct investigation. Their research has focused on the objective ...
The nature of consciousness remains deeply mysterious and profoundly important, with existential, medical and spiritual implication. We know what it is like to be conscious - to have awareness, a conscious mind, but who, or what, are we who know such things? How is the subjective nature of phenomenal experience - our inner life - to be explained in scientific terms? What consciousness actually is, and how it comes about remain unknown. The general assumption in modern science and philosophy - the standard model - is that consciousness emerges from complex computation among brain neurons, computation whose currency is seen as neuronal firings (spikes) and synaptic transmissions, equated with binary bits in digital computing. Consciousness is presumed to emerge from complex neuronal computation, and to have arisen during biological evolution as an adaptation of living systems, extrinsic to the makeup of the universe. On the other hand, spiritual and contemplative traditions, and some ...
Using sophisticated imaging equipment they have constructed a 3-D movie of the brain as it changes while an anaesthetic drug takes effect.. Brian Pollard, Professor of Anaesthesia at Manchester Medical School, will tell the European Anaesthesiology Congress in Amsterdam today (Saturday) that the real-time 3-D images seemed to show that losing consciousness involves a change in electrical activity deep within the brain, changing the activity of certain groups of nerve cells (neurons) and hindering communication between different parts of the brain.. He said the findings appear to support a hypothesis put forward by Professor Susan Greenfield, of the University of Oxford, about the nature of consciousness itself. Prof Greenfield suggests consciousness is formed by different groups of brain cells (neural assemblies), which work efficiently together, or not, depending on the available sensory stimulations, and that consciousness is not an all-or-none state but more like a dimmer switch, changing ...
In this interdisciplinary program, we will focus on advanced topics in consciousness studies and the psychology of dreams. Well explore consciousness by examining dreams and personal belief systems using both scientific research and first-person experience. Well explore dynamics of the psyche by examining the following questions. What is the psyche, what is consciousness, and what are their properties and dynamics? Are there different types of consciousness? What is the relationship between unconscious and conscious mental processes?

From the PEAR website: The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program, which flourished for nearly three decades under the aegis of Princeton Universitys School of Engineering and Applied Science, has completed its experimental agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes, and developing complementary theoretical models to enable better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of physical reality. Since the closing of the program, recent efforts have moved to a new organization, the International Consciousness Research Laboratories, or ICRL. ICRL promotes, encourages, and advances the study, research and dissemination of knowledge related to the broad field of human consciousness, including recognition of the role of anomalous phenomena for understanding the human mind and acknowledgement of subjectivity as a critical ingredient in any comprehensive model of physical reality.

A difficult problem for interdisciplinary study is deciding what constructs from other fields will comport well with the concerns of ones own academic area. Consciousness is a crucial concept for any discipline concerned with human behavior, but is particularly problematic for human communication scholars since it is not a primitive concept for speech communication. This essay advocates choosing a conception of consciousness that reflects the active role of language in shaping human consciousness and is presented in the theories of Vygotsky and Luria. The author suggests that such a perspective would be more practical and heuristic for communication studies than others currently being advanced since assessments of linguistic competency could then be used to investigate human consciousness ...
A professor at Caltech, Christof Koch helped popularize consciousness as a topic for serious scientific investigation-instead of windy philosophical supposition-through his collaboration with the great Francis Crick, who had already cracked the genetic code and now wanted to solve the riddle of mind as well. In 1994 Koch outlined a theory, jointly fashioned by him and Crick, that 40-hertz brain waves might be a key to consciousness. Although I was skeptical of that particular theory, I liked the hard-nosed, materialist, reductionist approach that Koch and Crick took toward consciousness.
