One Response to “Exploring the Nature of Consciousness”

  1. April 14, 2015 at 6:43 pm, Shaikh Raisuddin said:

    HOW AND WHY CONSCIOUSNESS IS DOMAIN OF PHYSICS

    Physics is BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCE of matter. It is not Physics that gives behaviour to matter; instead it is behaviour of matter that gives Physics. Physics is Psychology of matter.

    Origin of Awareness

    Awareness comes by changes. No change no consciousness. To be aware is
    to be effected (changed). Stimulus is a change causing agent. Only matter is tangible thus changeable. Thought, emotion, thinking, memory etc are by behaviour of matter of
    brain. Entropy is mind of matter. Memory is formed by hysteresis, information
    is log of changes.

    Inertia is Conscious Property of Matter and is the Self of matter

    Isaac Newton defined inertia as his first law in his Philosophiæ
    Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which states:

    “The vis insita, or innate force of matter, is a power of resisting
    by which every body, as much as in it lies, endeavours to preserve its present
    state, whether it be of rest or of moving uniformly forward in a straight
    line”.

    The characteristics of Inertia are as follows:

    #1 It is the only conscious property of matter, that is, matter
    “knows” on being subjected to change.

    #2 It causes “time-lag” in changing state of motion

    #3 It requires minimum “threshold” values to be changed.

    #4 It represents a state of “discreteness” from the other.

    #5 It keeps the “collectiveness” of components of matter.

    # It is the survival mechanism of matter

    Assumption: The ultimate divisibility of matter is unknown. Therefore every piece of matter is made up of components that is a piece of matter is collective existence of its components. Likewise the ultimate integral of matter is unknown eg Universe. Multiverse etc. To exist is to be discrete else reference, identity or comparison is not possible.

    Explanation

    When a force is applied on a piece of matter, if it does not move with
    its components then it is “plastic” else it is “elastic”. Plastic materials are unbonded or unconnected while elastic materials are internally connected. Connectedness means the ability to transport changes from one component to another.

    Materials with elastic properties, on being subjected to a force, need to share the applied force internally within its components in order to move all components together or collectively. Sharing of applied force takes place by transmission of elastic waves. Depending upon the strength of applied force geometry of internal connectedness and mass, composition, distribution, anisotrophy of material “time of repositioning” is required so that whole of material can or cannot move.

    In fact inertia is “work/energy distribution function” (from external to internal or vice versa). Which causes all work whether added or subtracted to be evenly distributed throughout volume of matter.

    Everything is in interface with its external and internal environment.

    The threshold value of force is warranted to overcome the force of “inertial” system eg gravitational force. There are variety of inertial systems applicable from situation to situation.

    Broadly there are two parts of inertia 1) morphological inertia and 2) physiological inertia (potential-balance, equilibrium, homeostasis and heterostasis) or structural and procedural inertia. Interaction between these two types of inertia generate “awareness”

    Inertia of matter is beholder of discreteness, collectiveness and consciousness. By consciousness it maintains discreteness externally and collectiveness internally. It is the property of protection of identity.

    Time is Fictitious

    Time is fictitious concept. It is measure of change of context of
    sources of stimuli.

    Information is misconceived

    Information is TRAVEL EFFECT of matter which causes exchange of energy
    and change of direction of travel. It is time log of changes. For ease of
    comprehension compare information from voice recorder.

    Subjectivity is Physical

    Subjectivity is inertial system of human body. Recall how in theory of
    relativity inertial frames influence physical process.

    Dualities have Linguistic Cause

    Duality of body and mind and first person/third person are linguistic errors. Communications between matters happen in LANGUAGE OF MATTER and not in
    social language.

    The words, “mind” and “consciousness” are not ‘nouns’ but ‘verbs’ because they represent neurological process that is “series of actions”

    Consciousness is not monopoly of man

    Man can have best of consciousness but he is not the beholder of it. Consciousness
    is HIERARCHICAL. Degree of consciousness increases with increase in variety of
    inertial systems and variety of number of languages of matter evolve from
    inanimate matter to Man.

    Definition:

    Consciousness is automatic change management process.

    Formula

    Consciousness, C = I x Wr/Ws + Wo

    where

    I = Interface coefficient that depends upon inertia of conscious body.

    Wr = Work done in response by conscious body

    Ws = Work done stimulus on conscious body

    Wo = threshold work, balance of work between conscious body and its
    inertial frame. Work by oscillator(s). It is the work done in maintaining
    self-consciousness.

    Consciousness interfaces internal structure with external environment
    like touch screen of mobile

    This is my Interface Theory of Consciousness whose abstract has been accepted by TSC 2015 Helsinki conference
