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. The University of Helsinki is proud to host TSC 2015 in the Great Hall of its neoclassical main building located in the downtown area.

Beyond my interests in number cognition, I am keen to discuss the possibility and prospects for developing a psychophysically neutral language (in the sense of Wolfgang Pauli) applicable to both cognitive science and physics, in philosophical issues related to dual-aspect and neutral monist theories, and in fruitful reflections or connections between quantum theory and consciousness.

To find a single formula to reach the truth. | The consciousness. | Border research. | Theoretical Philosophy. | My goal is to offer a new Worldview, including the neo-paradigms, or paradigms reformed, of Matter, Gravity, Consciousness, Time, Information, Truth and, perhaps, beyond Truth.
