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.

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.
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
Ever wonder how we try to predict the unpredictable? Supercomputers use the power of chaos theory.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.

Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
In less than 30 years, humanity has discovered more than 4,000 exoplanets
So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
