LATEST DIALOGUES A Conscious Cosmos by Peter Russell: Video

A Conscious Cosmos videoWe all know that we are aware. We couldn’t have an experience without being aware. But, despite appearances, we never experience the world directly – only the brain’s reconstruction of what is “out there.” We live in a virtual reality created by the brain.

But how do material processes in the brain give rise to something as immaterial as consciousness? And where do we draw the line between creatures that are conscious and those that aren’t?

The current scientific worldview assumes that the brain not only generates the picture of the world that we experience, but it also creates awareness itself.

An alternative assumption is that awareness goes all the way down the evolutionary tree.

This leads to the conclusion that the cosmos is a vast field of information that is also aware, a field of knowing knowing itself.

Short video summarizing Peter Russell’s latest ideas on why consciousness is fundamental to the cosmos.
