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. His understanding of the mystical life is rooted in close to 40 years of study, practice, unfoldment, realization and experience, in the course of which he has received the gifts of spiritual discernment and transmission. His teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in a student through the process and alchemy of mystical transformation.   Marc facilitates the mystical teachings under the style of Contemplative Pathways. He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by learning and understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles. He has been conducting classes and meditation meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years in a classroom, lecture, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting.   His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure authentic mysticism. His approach to the mystical life is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, spiritually transreligious, and definitively unitive and nondualistic. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring and spiritual healing practice.   Within the context of the great shift in consciousness now occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work presently focuses on individual and collective spiritual transformation and healing. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness.   Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination.
