SAND18 US — The Science of Consciousness

By Stuart Hameroff

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.
