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.

Ever wonder how we try to predict the unpredictable? Supercomputers use the power of chaos theory.
Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
Is math an invention of the human brain? Or does math exist in some abstract world, with humans merely discovering its truths? The debate has been raging since the time of the ancient Greeks.
Scientists have discovered a distinct turbulent fluid pattern, surprisingly close to Kolmogorov’s equation, hidden in many of Van Gogh’s paintings.

It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory.
The existence of an ether – an all-pervading medium composed of a subtler kind of matter – has been taught by mystic philosophers throughout the ages.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Since childhood I have been fascinated by holograms. The reason was the science fiction movie Star Wars and in 1984 I watched it for the first time.
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.
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
