Welcome to ’Toward a Science of Consciousness 2015’ the 21st annual international, interdisciplinary conference on the fundamental questions connected with conscious experience.

Toward a Science of Consciousness (TSC) is the largest and longest-running interdisciplinary conference emphasizing broad and rigorous approaches to the study of conscious awareness. Topical areas include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, biology, quantum physics, meditation and altered states, machine consciousness, culture and experiential phenomenology. Cutting edge, controversial issues are emphasized. Held annually since 1994, the TSC conferences alternate yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations around the world.

If interested in how we can model and simulate Consciousness, please talk to me. We can have a model of Consciousness comprising of Cosmic Automaton, Design Automaton, Knowledge Automaton and Global Environment which interact in a feedback look showing us the dance of Life and Conscious operations. My paper talks about these parts with equations.

The boss, Arrangements
I am a physical scientist with an interest in the philosophy of consciousness. I have tried to understand to what extent a scienctific approach can tell us about this. I have come up with the idea that a version of monism, based on the concept of an arrangement, can give a satisfactory account of the nature of consciousness and our minds. This can form the basis of emergentism and address the problem of mental causality.

The aim of my presentation is to distinguish present time as a temporal notion from consciousness as a notion linked to the locality of the brain or brain-based mind. Present time, or the now, is of course likewise tied to the brain and consciousness in various respects, just as it is commonly tied to the notion of past-to-present causal sequence, and future-to-past flow or passage. My aim, however, is to lay the case for a present time that... Read More →

I have an unusual, yet highly pertinent background for this conference. Grounded in the transformation of consciousness, applied to business change and leadership, I observed and worked with mind-matter correlations especially in the area of ‘meaningful coincidence’ and synchronistic experiences when organizations and their leaders are undergoing big change. The lack of a cogent theory that has applicable value has led to an unexamined... Read More →
