Mind and Brain: “Why Consciousness” on Public Radio


 
I recently reported about the quantum theory of consciousness in our recent post “Has Science Discovered the Soul?” here at The Mystical Path.

Then I came across the Mind and Brain episode of the PRI public radio program “To The Best Of Our Knowledge” (TTBOOK).  One of this episode’s segments, “Why Consciousness” by Steve Paulson, is related to the questions tackled in the blog.  In fact, one of the featured authorities or resource persons is British physicist Sir Roger Penrose, a co-proponent of the quantum consciousness theory.

Listen online to the segment “Why Consciousness” at the program episode’s site. Better yet, listen to the entire episode of Mind and Brain. All the six segments are exceptional. (A transcript of the program is available.)

Share your thoughts with us and post your comments below after listening to the program segment(s).

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of the mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of individual work (study and practice) and personal unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission.   Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s.   Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by learning and understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives.   His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic.   Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual transformation and healing. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work.   Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
