Category: Education
Description: Some claim consciousness, our inner awareness, is part of a 'cosmic consciousness'. Not only is consciousness the deepest reality, but also it brought into existence the totality of reality. This would mean that mind, the mental, is fundamental and primary, while the entire physical universe is derivative and secondary.Click here to watch more interviews on consciousness and the cosmos http://bit.ly/29lHrkGClick here to watch more interviews with Stuart Hameroff http://bit.ly/1hCziuIClick here to buy episodes or complete seasons of Closer To Truth http://bit.ly/1LUPlQSFor all of our video interviews please visit us at www.closertotruth.com

According to this theory, nothing really happens in physical world. Physical world is just a manifestation of the our consciousness. It seems that ancient Indian yogis have always known this. They have always believed in supreme consciousness which runs cosmos.

Free will has traditionally been a problem in philosophy. Recently, the battleground of free will has shifted to neuroscience. Now some claim that to solve the problem of free will, we must go far deeper, to the fundamentals of physics, down to subatomic forces and particles. But don't free will and physics operate at vastly different levels or size scales?

Dr. Hameroff's research for 35 years has involved consciousness - how the pinkish gray meat between our ears produces the richness of experiential awareness. A clinical anesthesiologist, Hameroff has studied how anesthetic gas molecules selectively erase consciousness via delicate quantum effects on protein dynamics. Following a longstanding interest in the computational capacity of microtubules inside neurons, Hameroff teamed with the eminent British physicist Sir Roger Penrose to develop a controversial quantum theory of consciousness called orchestrated objective reduction (Orch OR) which connects brain processes to fundamental spacetime geometry. Recently Hameroff has explored the theoretical implications of Orch OR for consciousness to exist independent of the body, distributed in deeper, lower, faster scales in non-local, holographic spacetime, raising possible scientific approaches to the soul and spirituality. @TEDxBrussels 2010

Stuart Hameroff http://www.quantumconsciousness.org/ Filmed during the “Infinite Consciousness Conference” Hosted by Ervin Laszlo, The Laszlo Institute of New paradigm Research http://www.laszloinstitute.com/ Bagni di Lucca, Italy, July 16-18, 2016 produced by The Institute for The Mythology of Humanity http://mythologyofhumanity.com/ https://www.facebook.com/mythologyofhumanity/ The Infinite Consciousness Conference: About the Conference On July 16 and 17, 2016, in Bagni di Lucca, Italy an international meeting of world-renowned thinkers and scientists took place. Each of the participants in this historic meeting is dedicated to what may be the most important question of our life: is our consciousness mortal and ending with the demise of our body, or is it a basic phenomenon in nature that continues beyond this life - and life after life? This most important question of our life was raised and discussed by some of the people most qualified in today’s world to answer it. The answers they put forward may change the way you think of yourself and of the world.

Michio Kaku's theory on quantifying consciousness suggests consciousness is the number of feedback loops required to create a model of your position in space with relation to other organisms and time. Buy the best selling book (WINNER OF THE 2014 BRAIN PRIZE ) Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts - http://amzn.to/20WYo7U He believes a thermostat has 1 unit of consciousness - it senses the temperature around it. A flower has around 10 units of consciousness - understands temperature, weather, humidity, gravity, etc. Level 1 Consciousness: Example - reptiles. Understand position in space. Level 2 Consciousness: Example - mammal. Understand relation to other organisms - emotions, social hierarchy. Level 3 Consciousness: Example - humans. Understand relation to time, ability to imagine the future.

Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a spiritual "soul"? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of "life after death." They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

For the full interview: http://consciousnesschronicles.com Sir Roger Penrose is an English mathematical physicist, mathematician and philosopher of science. He is the Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, as well as an Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College. Penrose is known for his work in mathematical physics, in particular for his contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He has received several prizes and awards, including the 1988 Wolf Prize for physics, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their contribution to our understanding of the universe. Dr. Stuart Hameroff is an anesthesiologist and professor at the University of Arizona known for his studies of consciousness. He received his BS degree from the University of Pittsburgh and his MD degree from Hahnemann University Hospital, where he studied before it became part of the Drexel University College of Medicine. He took an internship at the Tucson Medical Center in 1973. From 1975 onwards, he has spent the whole of his career at the University of Arizona, becoming professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Psychology and associate director for the Center for Consciousness Studies, both in 1999, and finally Emeritus professor for Anesthesiology and Psychology in 2003. Penrose and Hameroff teamed up in the mid-1990s to develop highly controversial theory of consciousness known as Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orch. OR), which proposed that consciousness is a quantum collapse occurring in complex substructures of neurons know as microtubules. This theory attracted much criticism over the years, but has recently been given a significant boost following the dramatic discovery of measurable quantum effects in microtubules by quantum biologist Anirban Bandyopadhyay, who is also featured in Chronicles 4.
