The mystery of consciousness

brain4Waarom zijn we bewustzijn? Is er een universele taal?



Why are we conscious? What is it about brain activity that is "magically" linked to conscious experiences, be it seeing, hearing, a thought, a feeling, or a memory? And how is that possible even in principle – if the brain is nothing more than 3 pounds of flesh with neurons and nerves? Neuroscience-trained consciousness theorist Pablo Rodriguez proposes an elegant explanation for the mystery of consciousness and the mind-body problem: C-Pattern Theory. Providing unexpected new clues and perspectives to other deep questions, too. And leading to profound implications and far-reaching possibilities way beyond consciousness itself.
