How Close is Science to Understanding Consciousness?

How Close is Science to Understanding Consciousness?

A. H. Almaas at the 2015 Science and Nonduality Conference

This panel features a convresation between four different scientists with varying views of consciousness or mind to understand their different contributions, and to see how they understand each other, and how they relate to other theories of consciousness. The point is to have a genuine deep dialogue between scientific theories of consciousness to find commonalities, and the meaning of the differences. We explore whether scientific theories have a consensus about anything relating to consciousness, like an operating definition of consciousness. The conversation is facilitated with an eye to the nondual view of consciousness, to ask questions and address issues in the study of consciousness that can help in looking deeper into the assumptions and conclusions of each theory.

  • The video features a panel discussion among scientists with different views on consciousness.
  • The discussion aims to understand the contributions of various scientific theories on consciousness, find commonalities, and explore the meaning of differences.
  • The panel explores if there is any consensus among scientific theories regarding any aspect of consciousness.
  • The facilitator guides the discussion from a nondual perspective, addressing issues and assumptions in the study of consciousness.
