The Primacy of Consciousness by Peter Russell   Peter Russell proposes that mind is more fundamental than matter. He explores the problems science has explaining consciousness and argues that consciousness is not created by the brain, but is inherent in all beings. A recent talk from SAND conference updates this material and takes it further. http://youtu.be/g04RHQ1ysb4 What does it mean to be conscious? All in the Mind The key to this alternative view is the fact that all our experiences—all our perceptions, sensations, dreams, thoughts and feelings—are forms appearing in consciousness. It doesn’t always seem that way. When I see [More]
Is Consciousness Located In The Brain? Evidence for Reincarnation   Dr. Bruce Greyson reports of cases that suggest that consciousness does not need a physical brain and in fact not even a physical body. Presented at the “Cosmology and Consciousness Conference” hosted by Upper TCV, Dharamsala, in 2011 Is there consciousness in other galaxies? What is the origin of consciousness? What is it like to be a bat, octopus, or a tree? These are all great questions but Dr. Bruce Grayson would like to ask, what it is like to be a human being? Most western psychologists believe that consciousness [More]

As A Man Thinketh by James Allen Narrated by Earl Nightingale “As A Man Thinketh” is a literary essay by James Allen, published in 1902. “Through most of time man’s control on the environment has been limited, but today this is no longer true. If a man thinks he might like to unmake the atom, he does. If he thinks of living in the depths of the oceans, going to the moon or voyaging in outer space, he does. The problem is no longer than what man can do, it becomes what man can think.” – Earl Nightingale The outer world [More]
John Hagelin, Ph.D discussing Consciousness & Superstring Unified Field Theory, How is knowledge lost and The Observer. “Modern quantum physics and molecular biology, neuroimmunology all say that we create our own realities and that we have a lot of responsibility over the world in which we live; at least in the way we experience the world and the way the world behaves toward us. Ultimately what we’d like to see is what is the physics of consciousness. We can ask that question today. What is consciousness? Where did we come from? What are the origins of consciousness? What are the limits [More]
Artificial intelligence is an ever evolving goal for researchers, and the object of endless fascination for writers, filmmakers, and the general public. But despite our best science fiction visions, creating digital intelligence is incredibly difficult. The universe is a very complicated place, and humans have had millions of years to evolve the ability to navigate and make sense of it. Contemporary attempts to create AI have us looking more at how our own brains work to see how a computer could simulate the core activities that create our intelligence. No matter how we get there, it is certain that artificial [More]

The human brain is perhaps the most complex of organs, boasting between 50-100 billion nerve cells or neurons that constantly interact with each other. These neurons ‘carry’ messages through electrochemical processes; meaning, chemicals in our body (charged sodium, potassium and chloride ions) move in and out of these cells and establish an electrical current.Take a look at other amazing facts about the Human Brain and find out what makes the the Human Brain work. Cerebrum The cerebrum is the largest portion of the brain, and contains tools which are responsible for most of the brain’s function. It is divided into [More]
One Mind, One Intelligence Excerpt: “. . . And so this concept of Hanmaum (One Mind) is central to every true path of spirituality. That our individual minds are a subset of a larger mind and then a larger, and a larger, and ultimately there is one single intelligence that flows through all of the myriads of life forms and even what we think of as inanimate objects. They all participate in the same ultimate intelligence. And thus the entire universe is intelligent. And if there are parallel universes they are included in this as well. Everything that can possibly [More]
One of our problems today it to try and find an adequate, satisfying, image of the world. Not only what image of the world to have but, how we can get our sensations and our feelings in accordance with the most sensible images and feelings of the world we can manage to conceive… Ceramic Model of the Universe vs Fully Automated Model  of the Universe  “If you awaken from this illusion, and you understand that black implies white, self implies other, life implies death — or shall I say, death implies life — you can feel yourself. Not as a stranger in [More]
Graham Hancock discusses the shamanistic utilization of psychedelics that create a state of being which usually gifts us a better understanding of our true nature and the nature of consciousness; so as to harmoniously balance our Earthly presence within the universe. “If we as adults are not allowed to make sovereign decisions about what to experience with our own consciousness, while doing no harm to others. Including the decision to use, responsibly, ancient and sacred visionary plants then we cannot claim to be free in any way.” – Graham Hancock
