An Introduction to Consciousness Theories

This is the FIRST LAYER of the Consciousness Iceberg. The must-read paper is "A Landscape of Consciousness: Toward a Taxonomy of Explanations and Implications" in Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pbiomolbio.2023.12.003. This was painstakingly and beautifully put together by Robert Lawrence Kuhn. ADDITIONAL LINKS: - https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pbiomolbio.2023.12.003 Robert Lawrence Kuhn's behemoth series on consciousness https://closertotruth.com/playlist/the-mystery-of-consciousness-why-is-consciousness-a-mystery/ [The Mystery of Consciousness | Closer to Truth] is something I highly recommend.

Rethinking the Foundations of Physics | Neil Turok

Welcome to Rethinking the Foundations brought to you by Curt Jaimungal at Theories of Everything. Today, Professor Neil Turok discusses unification in physics, explaining that understanding the universe and the laws of physics as a unified entity involves acknowledging that space and time are interconnected. Neil advocates for a closer examination of real-world observations and current cosmological data to guide our understanding of physics, rather than speculative theories like the multiverse.
