Börje Peratt artiklar 20 -30 april 2014

On the Origin of Consciousness

Toward a Science of Consciousness?

Now the week-long conference, Toward a Science of Consciousness in Tucson Arizona is over and there is a lot to digest from all seminars, meetings and discussions. The impressions after this 20th -anniversary project ( 1994-2014 ) was that the actual agenda dominates of physics and not consciousness.

Final day of TSC Near death experience? What!
I really wanted to listen to Sam Parnia this last day and hoped to get the latest news about the eventual results of the Aware study. Because of its design I believed it has limited chanses of getting any results at all. (These doubts are widely spread)

Fifth fantastic day TSC conference april 25 -personal diary
This friday was a range of synchronicity that changed my path. I stumbled upon Magdalena who is doing a documentary and I told her that I also was filmmaker.

30 April
På väg mot en vetenskap om medvetande?
Så är då den veckolånga konferensen -Toward a Science of Consciousness- i Tucson Arizona över och det är mycket att smälta från alla seminarier, möten och diskussioner. Intrycken efter detta 20-årsjubilerande projekt (1994-2014) blev att själva agendan backat ner i neurologernas statistikstudier.
