Our brain is not a “stand alone” information processing organ: it acts as a central part of our integral nervous system with recurrent information exchange with the entire organism and the cosmos. [] Key Result It also points out the deep connection of mankind with the cosmos and our major responsibility for the future of our planet.

WORKING PROCESS OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Stephen Hawking (1988) proclaimed: everything that matters in the universe is electromagnetic field activity. The force field idea reached back to David Bohm who advocated the idea that our world is

Consciousness in the Universe is Tuned by a Musical Master Code, Part 3: A Hydrodynamic Superfluid Quantum Space Guides a Conformal Mental Attribute of Reality

The assumed hydrodynamic superfluid background field is proposed to guide the ongoing fabric of reality through a quantum metalanguage that is instrumental in the manifestation of universal consciousness, of which human consciousness is an integral part.

Quantum and Electromagnetic Fields in Our Universe and Brain: A New Perspective to Comprehend Brain Function

The wave-vortex or wave movement comes into review, which seems to have a limited concept, i.e., the limited projected wave concept, which may coexist inside the human brain as electric and quantum brainwaves, respectively, with both of them giving rise to one brain field.

Life and Consciousness are Guided by a Semi-Harmonic EM Background Field

Quantum entangled life conditions and graded states of consciousness in the universe are scale invariant and are guided by a quantum wave meta-language in a superfluid quantum space/ zero-point

From the perspective of the Informational Model of Consciousness elaborated and reported recently on the basis of the last discoveries of the quantum mechanics and astrophysics, the meeting horizon

Quantum Theory and Consciousness: A Link between Human Mind and Quantum Physics

The nature and idea of consciousness is very mysterious and has profound importance, with existential, medical and spiritual implications and productivity. Behavior and functioning of the brain or,

Big ideas in education: Quantum mechanics and education paradigms

Abstract Current education paradigms were informed by the classical Newtonian worldview of brain functioning in which the mind is simply the physical activity of the brain, and our thoughts cannot

Unified Physics and the Entanglement Nexus of Awareness

An analysis is made of the correlation between internal processes of the neurobiological system, which ostensibly generate the subjective qualia of experiential awareness, and the external

The Extended Brain: Cyclic Information Flow in a Quantum Physical Realm

The central hypothesis of the present paper is that a versatile and rapid responding brain function requires complementary information processing mechanisms both at the iso-energetic and quantum levels, enabling bottom up and top down information processing.

Physical Consciousness Outside the Brain: Parasite Fermion Model for Substance of Consciousness

It is hypothesized that the aforementioned mechanism renders the parasite fermion invisible, although they exist around us, and this is a material particle that exists in the extra dimension, i.e., outside the authors' four-dimensional universe.

On the Character of Consciousness

This work applies statistical mechanics of open systems to describe the brain as a hierarchical system in consuming free energy in least time and ascribed to a natural process that integrates various neural networks for coherent consumption of free energy, i.e., for meaningful deeds.

A Conceptual Framework for Consciousness Based on a Deep Understanding of Matter

One of the main challenges in consciousness research is widely known as the hard problem of consciousness. In order to tackle this problem, I utilize an approach from theoretical physics, called

My double unveiled

This introduction to the dissipative quantum model of brain and to its possible implications for consciousness studies is addressed to a broad interdisciplinary audience. Memory and consciousness are

Quantum modeling of the mental state: the concept of a cyclic mental workspace

It is argued that super-causal mechanisms are required to optimally integrate the above mentioned building blocks of brain function, also enabling the brain to amplify minimal perturbations for proper anticipation and action and concluded that quantum concepts may, at least, serve as a useful probability model and/or metaphor for human cognition.

Brain activity on a hypersphere

It is demonstrated that spontaneous brain activity displays the typical features which reveal the existence of a functional hyper-sphere, which helps solve long-standing mysteries concerning the authors' psychological activities such mind-wandering and memory retrieval or the ability to connect, pasts and future events.

Consciousness In The Universe

The proposed Orch OR suggests that there is a connection between the brain's biomolecular processes and the basic structure of the universe, and it is concluded that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe.

Evidence is presented herein of invariant features of brain electrical activity found to change reversibly with loss and return of consciousness in a study of 176 patients anesthetized during surgical procedures, leading to a postulation that consciousness is a property of quantum-like processes within a brain field resonating within a core of structures, which may be the neural substrate of consciousness.

Global Workspace Dynamics: Cortical “Binding and Propagation” Enables Conscious Contents

In this view, conscious contents can arise in any region of the C-T core when multiple input streams settle on a winner-take-all equilibrium, and the resulting conscious gestalt may ignite an any-to-many broadcast, lasting ∼100–200 ms, and trigger widespread adaptation in previously established networks.
