The Three Languages of the Brain: Quantum, Reorganizational, and Associative

  title={The Three Languages of the Brain: Quantum, Reorganizational, and Associative},
  author={Subhash C. Kak and Karl H. Pribram and Joseph S. King},
Progress in science is reflected in a corresponding development of language. The vistas opened up by the microscope, the telescope, tomography and other sensing devices have resulted in the naming of new entities and processes. Quantum theory has led to the supersession of the classical atomic picture and one speaks in terms of tangled processes and non-binary logic. Quantum theory has also led to deep questions related to the definition of the observer and the observed. This has been one path…

Vais . n . ava Metaphysics or a Science of Consciousness

Mainstream science deals with the exploration of the large and the small. Over the last few centuries, two fundamental theories have emerged: (i) classical physics, which describes the properties of

Another Look at Quantum Neural Computing

It is argued that the reorganizational behavior of the brain may be viewed as inner adjustment corresponding to its quantum behavior at the system level, and not only neural structures but their higher abstractions also may be seen as whole entities.

Why Machines Cannot be Conscious

Mental processes are abstracted from a subset of the physical universe ; these, in turn, lead to the world of ideas. Although these ideas include quantum logic, no credible way has yet been found

Consciousness and Freedom according to the SivaS

The logic of materialist science fails when observers are considered. How can inanimate matter, governed by xed laws, lead to mind? To bring in consciousness as a separate category like space, time,

It is argued that consciousness is more than an epiphenomenon and assuming it to be a separate category is consistent with both quantum mechanics and cognitive science.

Quantum brain-time matrix — The correlation between brain-mind-time with quantum spin and quantum entanglement: Quantum computation of the brain and representation as a matrix

The relation between Brain or Mind and Consciousness is unknown for quite a while. Several Theories and Compositions have been made by Neurologists all over the Globe; still, the relation is still

The Gods Within - on the vedic understanding of mind and neuroscience

Mind is the last frontier of science. We observe the physical universe through our mind, yet we have no clear idea how mind functions, how memories are stored and recalled and what is the origin of

A quantum leap for AI

The rationale for the convergence between quantum computing and AI is presented, prospects for realizing the technology are discussed and several puzzling features of animal and human intelligence and a new direction to develop AI machines are discussed.

Consciousness in Ancient India

The Vedic texts from ancient India (approx. 3000–1000 BCE) claim to be ātmavidyā, “science of self ” or “consciousness science.” The most ancient of these is the cryptic R. gveda. But prose

Machines and Consciousness

The mainstream view of science is based on the paradigm of the machine, in which the larger mechanism is built out of smaller subsystems. According to this paradigm, systems can be separated and any



Reflections In Clouded Mirrors: Selfhood In Animals and Machines

This essay presents a summary of the Vedic theory of consciousness in juxtaposition with the parallel ideas of quantum mechanics and neu-roscience. The ancient Vedic tradition of philosophy of
