Federico Faggin, inventor of the first microprocessor and one of the creators of the digital revolution, presents a model for consciousness that clearly spells out the answer to the question: Can a digital computer become conscious? Physics describes a meaningless world, he tells us, because meaning has been defined away - not because the world is meaningless. And in a world made of abstract information consciousness cannot exist.

Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
Reversing history from Galileo's time, it is now the scientists who refuse to look through the telescope.
There is a mystery that has confounded scientists for a century.
Ever wonder how we try to predict the unpredictable? Supercomputers use the power of chaos theory.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
Physicists See Hints of X17, an Elusive Particle That Could Be a New Force of Nature
What is happening right now? Is your “now” the same as my “now”?
The Born rule, which connects the math of quantum theory to the outcomes of experiments, has been derived from simpler physical principles.
Galaxies can move with each other across huge distances, and against the predictions of basic cosmological models.
In our everyday life, time flows in one direction—forward. When you put a frozen pizza in the hot oven, the pizza heats up. When you hit a baseball, it flies over the wall (if you’re having a good day at bat). When you knock a coffee mug off a table...
Billions of years ago, an iron nucleus forged in another galaxy was flung into space at close to the…
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
The most famous case study in science, prior to Freud, was published in 1728 in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society by the English surgeon William Cheselden, who attended Newton in his final illness.
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
It's not only a big deal; it's the biggest deal of all.
The new study demonstrates a bizarre quantum effect at never-before-seen scales
The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
