“Explaining Multiple Forms of Conscious Awareness, and More,” Dr. Frank Heile, Dec. 6th, 4:30-6pm, Alway M114.

Explaining Multiple Forms of Conscious Awareness, and More,” Frank Heile, Ph.D. (Physics, Stanford)

If you would like to attend dinner with the speaker after the seminar, please contact StanfordComplexity (at) gmail.com !!!

This talk  presents a materialistic model of consciousness that can explain the distinctions between several different forms of conscious awareness:

  • Non-human animal consciousness
  • Modern human consciousness
  • Flow state consciousness
  • “Enlightened” states of consciousness (also known as “nonduality”)
  • Consciousness experienced in Auto-Activation Deficit syndrome
  • The phenomenal consciousness vs. access-consciousness distinction proposed by NYU philosopher Ned Block
  • How spirituality developed and how its invention changed consciousness

A three-agent model of the brain, combined with the Attention Schema Theory model of awareness proposed by Princeton neuroscientist Michael Graziano, provides a framework to explain these distinctions.

Finally, this model can offer answers to the following philosophical questions:

  • Why does conscious awareness seem to be fundamentally non-physical and to not have a location in space?
  • What conditions cause conscious awareness to arise?
  • Can conscious awareness exist without a “self?”
  • Do humans have free will?

There is bound to be disagreement with the proposed answers to these questions, but these concrete answers provide a starting point for thought-provoking discussions!
