One single atom is conscious unto itself, to just say its humans that are conscious is suggesting some kind of magical force is implanted in the building process. Absurd and lays in the realm of mysticism, certainly not science. Log in to Reply Excellent Stuart! Consciousness is the root of all being. The video needs better audio and video resolution, hard to watch & listen with all the aliasing. Log in to Reply Can a computer be self aware or conceptualize. Diane Fossey said you can teach a gorilla language but a gorilla can not be taught to conceptualize. I would guess neither can a paramecian. At the quantum level, only now exists so there must be a constant flow to past which does not exist anymore and present which does exist from future which does not exist yet. Log in to Reply no you got it all wrong, he says in summary; I know i have free will, but that doesent correalate to the fact that advance machines wouldnt have it if built the same, and he says that basic neurons cant produce consciousness by themselves, and that we have to go deeper into each neuron, but ofc then quantum mechanics is applied to everything saying that things can be two places at the same time, get entangled over enormous distances etc. And all of this is true btw Log in to Reply Good argument. But how do you explain instinct and intuition? Log in to Reply Hugo de Garis says the brain has 10 to the power of 16 bits per second capacity It’s pretty obvious to me that consciousness can be built in a machine, because consciousness is also *built* in a baby/child. Because the baby starts from 1 cell, and becomes conscious after a few years. Log in to Reply So because our brain is more complex, we have consciousness? Pst, it doesn’t make sense to me! Log in to Reply What he says, in summary: I don’t like the prospect of not having free will, so it must come from this thing that we are far from understanding well. Ok, I respect your opinion, but I disagree. Some notes: – bacteria show complex computations (through behavior) because of evolution pressure; it doesn’t correlate to how neurons evolved. – deterministic doesn’t mean predictable, you can’t predict the state of a chaotic system over long time. Log in to Reply Nice video, I have selected it as one of my favorites, and even incorporated it into my playlistL Consciousness, Higher Consciousness, Artificial Consciousnes Log in to Reply u simply don’t get it. Look at some Deepak Chopra stuff, maybe you can understand some more 🙂 Log in to Reply u missed the point. Log in to Reply I agree. Fuck the police. We’re not responsible for our actions, we are deterministic machines/puppets. We can’t choose right? it is just an illusion. Log in to Reply Well aren’t you a regular Roger Penrose. Wait, Penrose supports this theory! Log in to Reply And he was a real dick about it. Like Hameroff had enough good points in his talk that Krauss’ own worldview felt threatened. Krauss was a dick to Sam Harris too when Harris even suggested the possibility of studying reincarnation. Log in to Reply We ain’t in control of anything. Log in to Reply Oh look, it’s Ming! Log in to Reply the guy talks like twice maybe three times… get over it Log in to Reply whats very strange is that i hear that electrons can vanish and reapers in another location of the brain, but science has only one idea to why it does that and that is idea of parallel universe … god i hate saying that lol but yeah that’s what i hear. Log in to Reply I’m wondering how Dr. Hameroff thinks our Consciousness manifests after death ? Or does he believe there is no life after death ? I have a degree in Physics and took a 9 month graduate course from Richard Feynman. I was never told that Newton believed that planets and stars have consciousness. I had to read Newton’s writings to learn this. They never mentioned consciousness in my Physics education, though they constantly ridiculed Astrology. Historically, Physics came from Astrology.
