Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview of quantum theory and general relativity with an update of the latest ideas and findings from the science of consciousness. He illustrates Roger Penrose’s suggestion that the collapse of the wave function causes consciousness, not the other way round, describing Objective Reduction (OR) as still the only mechanism to explain consciousness. He concludes with the tantalizing idea that life and consciousness may play an intrinsic role in the nature of the universe, allowing the physical constants to mutate and evolve from aeon to aeon.

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.
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...
