"Every man, I suppose, at least once in their lives, has fallen off, as struck, before this mystery of mysteries: my inner being s'apparaissant to himself. Devant le phénomène de la conscience. Faced with the phenomenon of consciousness.

Je me sais !!! I know! Et que resterait-il de ce moi sans cette connaissance ?!!! And what will be left of me without this knowledge?! "

Inner Presence: Consciousness as a Biological Phenomenon
by Antti RevonsuoSearch for Antti Revonsuo
$17.70 new/used

The question of consciousness is perhaps the most significant problem still unsolved by science. In Inner Presence, Antti Revonsuo proposes a novel approach to the study of consciousness that integrates findings from philosophy, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience into a coherent theoretical framework. Arguing that any fruitful scientific approach to the problem must consider both the subjective psychological reality of consciousness and the objective neurobiological reality, Revonsuo proposes that the best strategy for discovering the connection between these two realities is one of "biological realism," using tools of the empirical biological sciences. This approach, which he calls the "biological research program," provides a theoretical and philosophical foundation that contemporary study of consciousness lacks.Revonsuo coins the term "world simulation metaphor" and uses this metaphor to develop a powerful way of thinking about consciousness as a biological system in the brain. This leads him to propose that the dreaming brain and visual consciousness are ideal model systems for empirical consciousness research. He offers a comprehensive overview and critical analysis of consciousness research and defends his approach against currently popular philosophical views, in particular against approaches that deny or externalize phenomenal consciousness, or claim that brain activity is not sufficient for consciousness. He systematically examines the principal issues in the science of consciousness -- the contents of consciousness, the unity of consciousness and the binding problem, the explanatory gap and the neural correlates of consciousness, and the causal powers and function of consciousness.Revonsuo draws together empirical data from a wide variety of sources, including dream research, brain imaging, neuropsychology, and evolutionary psychology, into the theoretical framework of the biological research program, thus pointing the way toward a unified biological science of consciousness. Applying imaginative thought experiments, Inner Presence reaches beyond the current state-of-the-art, revealing how the problem of consciousness may eventually be solved by future science.

Computer Consciousness Anomalies Of 9-11 (Best of The Heavy Stuff)
by H. R. PhillipsSearch for H. R. Phillips

Welcome to the first in what will be a series of books derived from previous posts on the blog called `The Heavy Stuff?. All posts on The Heavy Stuff are written by esoteric blogger ? author ? lecturer, original thinker and Phenomenologist H. R. Phillips. Indeed, many posts within the blog The Heavy Stuff are written based on what Phillips calls the Phillips Phenomenology; a system of original thought `about spaces? similar to great thinkers such as Edmund Husserl and Sartre.

Book one in this `best of? series is inspired by information that Phillips came across on the internet - information concerning random number generators on 9-11 involved in an on-going experiment at Princeton University. It was information that forced him to create the blog The Heavy Stuff.

Phillips did so - so that he could share what he believes to be his unique phenomenological insights into some mysteries of the random data collected on September 11th, 2001 via linked computers at Princeton University. `Random? information data that has become the crux of what is considered to be the possible proof of a Global Consciousness called the Noosphere ? via the ongoing Princeton research project to see if random number generators worldwide may be influenced by human events and emotion.

The Noosphere of global consciousness is a bold idea which uses analysis of the `irregularities? in randomness of data collected within the computers, overlayed to the timing of great human events. The idea is that if `randomness? can be affected, perhaps the world consciousness is indeed responding to human consciousness.

But, other aspects of the irregularities of the random number generators on that day suggest an even deeper explanation to Phillips. Much Deeper. An explanation so deep, that it is involved with human intentionality and expectations. With a mystery that may be solved by thinking in terms of Phenomenology itself ? the Phillips Phenomenology.

While this book is short in physical terms of the number of pages - about 15 pages via your e-reader - the thoughts are long, and long lasting. A book worthy of your E-Bookshelf.

Mind to Mind (Studies in Consciousness)
by Rene WarcollierSearch for Rene Warcollier
$11.04 new/used

Telepathy includes the communication of emotions, ideas, mental images, sensations or words from one individual to another without the help of the senses?

In the early part of the twentieth century, a chemical engineer named Rene Warcollier devised and conducted a series of experiments in telepathic communication. The participants sought to transmit drawings, at varying distances and using only the power of the mind, to subjects who would record their impressions on paper. In Mind to Mind, Warcollier describes these experiments in precise detail, including many of the transmitted drawings and recorded impressions. His research revealed surprising parallels between the principles of extrasensory communication and those of modern psychology.

Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts
by Stanislas DehaeneSearch for Stanislas Dehaene
$8.45 new/used


A breathtaking look at the new science that can track consciousness deep in the brain

How does our brain generate a conscious thought? And why does so much of our knowledge remain unconscious? Thanks to clever psychological and brain-imaging experiments, scientists are closer to cracking this mystery than ever before.

In this lively book, Stanislas Dehaene describes the pioneering work his lab and the labs of other cognitive neuroscientists worldwide have accomplished in defining, testing, and explaining the brain events behind a conscious state. We can now pin down the neurons that fire when a person reports becoming aware of a piece of information and understand the crucial role unconscious computations play in how we make decisions. The emerging theory enables a test of consciousness in animals, babies, and those with severe brain injuries.

A joyous exploration of the mind and its thrilling complexities, Consciousness and the Brain will excite anyone interested
in cutting-edge science and technology and the vast philosophical, personal, and ethical implications of finally quantifying
