Dukkyu Choi Brain Versus Mind

The book is divided into three partsThe Mind in Every Day Living, The Mind and the Dream World, and The Mind after Death. Due to the immateriality of mind or consciousness and the unknown mechanism thereof, the terms such as consciousness, mind, thought, emotion, and the like are not clearly defined, even in the twenty-first century, Choi Writes. To discover the mechanism and to define the terms clearly are my concerns in this book. He adds that one of his objectives is to prove continuity of consciousness after death. The first five consciousnesses are our sense consciousnesses, Choi explains, while the sixth consciousness, called the mano-vijnana, is generated by the sixth organ, referred to as the organ of mind or root of mind. What exactly that is, Choi continues, we do not know. However, it is crystal clear that the sixth organ is not the brain. It must be a nonphysical and immaterialistic organ that is capable of reading something. Choi goes on to explain the seventh consciousness, called manas. Unlike the first six consciousnesses, this one does not have an organ. It involves thinking, cogitation, and intellection. The first six consciousnesses perceive and discriminate their corresponding objects and trigger to think so as to give rise to the seventh consciousness, manas, which is accumulated in the eighth consciousness, alaya, as seeds of mind (cittas), Choi continues, adding that all mental activities are stored in alaya.

Peter Ingle The Little Book of Awareness

Awareness is beyond the mind. At best, the mind can suggest what awareness is and describe what it is not. The Little Book of Awareness tries to go a step farther by evoking awareness in the reader and exploring what it means for awareness to consciously realize itself as pure awareness. Only when this happens does true transformation begin.

James Christodoulides Consciousness and Evolution

Understanding the nature of consciousness is the key to understanding the whole of reality. It is not that mind has emerged from matter but rather that consciousness and matter are dual aspects of a much greater reality. Beyond the simplistic notion of duality that is so entrenched in Western philosophies, there is a deeper and more profound way to comprehend the nature of our existence. We are parts within a wider whole. We do not exist as separate beings within the Universe, we are parts of the Universe itself.The theory outlined in Consciousness and Evolution turns orthodox explanations for the evolution of mind upside down. It is not matter that has created consciousness but rather it is consciousness that has moulded matter and created intelligent beings like ourselves.In order to understand why we are here, and to live our lives as fully as we might, we must seek to address the issue at the very core of our being: the existence of mind itself.

Eric Tiller The Mysterious Mind. A consideration of consciousness, materialism . panpsychism

The mind is a truly mysterious thing. However, it should remembered that the universe of which minds are a part is also mysterious. These two issues are linked. The result is that a diverse array of positions exist concerning the nature of mind/consciousness, the nature of the universe, and the relationship between the two. Some people believe that the entire universe is conscious - if this is so, then the universe is seemingly more mysterious than the human mind. Contrarily, if only small parts of the universe are conscious then the question arises as to how the non-conscious universe evolved these parts; there is still a mystery to be solved. In this book Tiller outlines his own perspective on these long-standing debates. He considers the views of various philosophers such as David Chalmers, Daniel Dennet, Thomas Nagel, Hans Jonas, Ervin Laszlo, Colin McGinn and Christian de Quincey and blends them together into a new view of the universe in which consciousness (in the philosophical, but not the psychological sense) is a non-emergent and pervasive phenomenon. On this view all parts of the universe have the same level of consciousness.

Dr. A.P. Sharma Know Thyself - Attain Peace & Happiness

Presented in the most lucid style, the purpose of the book is not merely to know the characteristics of the self. It is also to find out about the truth of existence and beyond death,as well as to learn the process to knowledge. Only then the individual would discover the reasons for his selfishness, hatred, anger, fear that he cradles everyday in his life. The issue to have the knowledge of the `self` is very obscure. Yet the ideas presented in the book are not only inspirational but also introspective and embody the qualitative rational techniques to reach higher recesses of consciousness and soul-realization. The book is captivating as examples from real-life situations have been quoted to explain what is the nature of the Self and how it can transcend to tranquillity, peace and permanent bliss. Some Glimpses: *Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you *The Western point of view about Self--Greek Ideas, European Contention and Five Theories of Mind *The Eastern Approach--Vedantic conception, Gita`s mantras, Jiva as a conscious substance *Western dilemma and the Eastern approach--concept of unity and the quest for unity

Sergio Santos, Matteo Chiesa, Maritsa Kissamitaki The Fabric of Consciousness

This short book is an invitation to thinking around the meaning of the terms consciousness, reality, logics, truth, and human. It also centers on the mind, not in the sense that we want to scientifically describe the brain, its parts, and its functions. We describe the mind in that with the mind, we can attend to what the world, ourselves, and others have to say. Is the mind a tool for logics, coherence, and the grasping of emotions? This book comes at a time when predictive AI and definitions of intelligence are expected to overwhelm humans with logics and evidence that anchor to a reality constructed with strong and reasonable arguments. In the meantime, and in the middle of a turmoil of words, dissolving truths, and ambiguity, new technologies such as AI and the laws that come with them are emerging.

The River of Consciousness

Two weeks before his death, Oliver Sacks outlined the contents of The River of Consciousness, the last book he would oversee. The best-selling author of On the Move, Musicophilia, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Sacks is known for his illuminating case histories about people living with neurological conditions at the far borderlands of human experience. But his grasp of science was not restricted to neuroscience or medicine; he was fascinated by the issues, ideas, and questions of all the sciences. That wide-ranging expertise and passion informs the perspective of this book, in which he interrogates the nature not only of human experience but of all life. In The River of Consciousness, Dr. Sacks takes on evolution, botany, chemistry, medicine, neuroscience, and the arts, and calls upon his great scientific and creative heroes - above all, Darwin, Freud, and William James. For Sacks, these thinkers were constant companions from an early age; the questions they explored - the meaning of evolution, the roots of creativity, and the nature of consciousness - lie at the heart of science and of this book. The River of Consciousness demonstrates Sacks’s unparalleled ability to make unexpected connections, his sheer joy in knowledge, and his unceasing, timeless endeavor to understand what makes us human.

Ludwig Dylan Intentionality, Information, and Consciousness

This book offers a new interpretation of the principles of Naturalistic philosophy that are relevant to the philosophy of mind, and attempts to accomplish the broader task of showing how we can make significant progress in our thinking about consciousness by first offering new conceptual foundations that can ground our theorizing, and then applying these new ideas to specific problems in the field. The book first articulates the advantages of Naturalism, properly understood, as a valuable methodological alternative to traditional approaches to problems in the field. The book proceeds to show how the phenomenon of intentionality is to be understood given the principles of Naturalism, and a naturalistic account of intentionality emerges. I conclude with a consideration of the implications that a naturalistic account of intentionality has for our understanding of the nature of consciousness in general.

Will Brennan Embracing No Other. Awakening through shamanic plant medicines to non-dual awareness of no-self

The book “Embracing No Other’ begins as a description of the events of Will's life that lead up to a profound shift in consciousness and details the subsequent unfolding of identity. Within his description there is an invitation and a clear message. His words invite us to question our very sense of self for Truth, to question our limitations and the self-image we hold so dear. The message there-in is a simple teaching which suggests that ‘you may come to truly know who or what you are when you let go of what you are not.’ It is not so much the events of his life that are important but the pointing to the ability to surrender all for the love of truth. This shines through his words in a way that inspires and guides without being rigidly defined. This surrendering and inquiry as to his true nature, along with the grace of Spirit, led to an awakening from a limited and egoic separate self to the unbounded freedom of ‘Being.’ The book gently encourages a deeper exploration of our essential nature and is a clear pointer to the Truth that is behind and beyond all spirituality, traditions and religions.

Rajakishore Nath Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence. A Critique of the Mechanistic Theory of Mind

This book deals with the major philosophical issues in the theoretical framework of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in particular and cognitive science in general. The researchers in AI are concerned with the issues of consciousness, human subjectivity, creativity, etc. Cognitive Science and AI argue that consciousness can be artificially created and comprehended in the function of robots. The robotic activities explain the mechanism involved in computation, language processing, sensing the information, etc. Contrary to this thesis, the philosophical study tries to show that human consciousness, thinking, imagination, etc. are much larger concepts and need to be delved into in the broad theoretical framework. This book is a critique of the mechanistic theory of mind. It shows the basic foundation of AI and its limitations in explaining the activities of the human mental life. Machine-functionalism fails to account for the subjective nature of consciousness and the creativity involved in the conscious acts. There are two aspects of this thesis-- the epistemological and the metaphysical. Epistemologically, the subject of consciousness intimately knows the raw feelings or the qualia. Metaphysically speaking, however, the raw feelings are real in the sense that they are part of the furniture of the mental world. Therefore, we can hardly deny that the mental world is real.

Dr Farvardin Daliri I Think I Should Not Think. An inspiring journey of self-awareness

Yes, you can stop following your involuntary thoughts and instead focus on what you chose to think about. This book provides practical tools for mind control and stress management. You will become aware of your true and unlimited powers when you use your mind instead of being driven by your emotional impulse and subconscious processes.At the heart of all human endeavours, dreams, hopes and suffering, there are some unresolved questions. At best, these remain unanswered and at the worst, they present conflicting and confusing truths. Who am I? Am I a mind and body operation? Or am I a reality beyond the physics of my being; a consciousness? Who has the answers, science or religion? Who is running my life? Is it my free will or a predetermined destiny? Who made me? Who created the universe in which I exist? Was it God or the big bang and natural selection of the evolutionary process? I attempt in this book to take readers on a journey in search of answers to these questions, and with the hope of finding reliable and true happiness. At the book's conclustion, new insights, comprehension and realizations may emerge. The author does not claim to answer these questions with knowledge but rather by bringing forth intuitive powers and awareness latent within each reader. Therefore the journey is more about self-awareness and discovery. It is about what you already know rather than learning more objective information about the truth.

Rupert Glasgow Minimal Selfhood and the Origins of Consciousness Rupert Glasgow Minimal Selfhood and the Origins of Consciousness Новинка

Rupert Glasgow Minimal Selfhood and the Origins of Consciousness

In Minimal Selfhood and the Origins of Consciousness, R.D.V. Glasgow seeks to ground the logical roots of consciousness in what he has previously called the 'minimal self'. The idea is that elementary forms of consciousness are logically dependent not, as is commonly assumed, on ownership of an anatomical brain or nervous system, but on the intrinsic reflexivity that defines minimal selfhood. The aim of the book is to trace the logical pathway by which minimal selfhood gives rise to the possible appearance of consciousness. It is argued that in specific circumstances it thus makes sense to ascribe elementary consciousness to certain predatory single-celled organisms such as amoebae and dinoflagellates as well as to some of the simpler animals. Such an argument involves establishing exactly what those specific circumstances are and determining how elementary consciousness differs in nature and scope from its more complex manifestations.

Joel S. Goldsmith Rising in Consciousness. The San Francisco Lecture Series

Rising in Consciousness is the first in a trilogy of books that includes Consciousness in Transition and Consciousness Transformed. All three books present some of Joel Goldsmith’s lecture series. Rising in Consciousness and Consciousness in Transition illuminate his early class work, while Consciousness Transformed records the last years of his work. Together the trilogy presents a holistic overview of a living message.In Rising in Consciousness, readers can study the formative work of one of the great mystics of the 20th century in the 18 talks he gave in San Francisco at the beginning of his teaching ministry. The book presents truth as Goldsmith did – in clear, practical, and real terms. The reader can virtually sit in on an actual class experience, where the motivation and yearnings of the seekers who were present elicited the message that Joel brought through in each lesson. “Don’t look up to me, the lecturer on the platform,” he would say. “Use what I tell you, take a hold of these principles that are emerging in this living lesson. Listen, hear me, absorb and practice these principles. Then you will discover that source within you. Always within you.”In these talks, Goldsmith works from the framework of principles that he called the nature of God, the nature of prayer, and the nature of error. “If you understand these principles,” he maintained, “you have it all.” As the foreword to the book says, “In these times of external uncertainty, there is no greater gift of lo...

Your Greater Self or The Inner Consciousness, written by William Walker Atkinson in 1908, is yet another title in his repertoire pertaining to greater or higher thought. In this case, the book centers on the idea that there are higher levels of consciousness and meaning that we can become in tune with through meditation and concentration. Atkinson starts by describing the different centers of the mind-such as the basement and the storehouse-and uses imagery to help his readers understand how to reach their inner consciousness and use it to its full potential.American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, including "Yogi," some of which are likely still unknown today.

What is consciousness? What is the substance of consciousness? Is it material or immaterial, mortal or immortal? How is it connected with a body?

Jean-Marc Mantel, Simon Macnab The Scent of Oneness

This dialogue between Simon Macnab and Jean-Marc Mantel, is an inquiry into the profound nature of the Self, free from cultural or religious distortion. Based upon many years of spiritual research and life experience, their conversation explores the major questions of existence from a fresh and original perspective, allowing the beauty of language and the depth of silence to emerge. The themes addressed integrate ancient wisdom with modern life, weaving together the challenges of ordinary living with the extraordinariness of Consciousness, the personal involvement of the 'I' with the serene detachment of the Self. Thus is revealed how, in every moment, we are invited to awaken to the radiant splendour hidden behind the world of form.A French version of this book is also available.
Jane Weldon Platonic Jung. And the Nature of Self Jane Weldon Platonic Jung. And the Nature of Self Новинка

Jane Weldon Platonic Jung. And the Nature of Self

How does Jung model his psychology on Plato’s philosophy? The Platonic Jung gives us a clear look at the remarkable similarities between the two, particularly in the structure of the cosmos and psyche, and in the nature of the self. The individual self is identified as soul in each system, and it is placed in what both Jung and Plato call the “third,” a level of being located in-between the divine Self or One, and the ego complex or sense based self. Practicing the work of individuation in Jung or philosophy in Plato, which are also shown to be similar paths of development, a person is able to unite the opposites in the lower self. Thus, by healing the conflicts inherent in psychological injury, consciousness is developed in soul and its subtle body. The transcendent function is the cornerstone of individuation in Jung, and we learn here that he included an energetic aspect of transformation in the function, which is actually responsible for the movement of consciousness from ego-complex into soul in the third.Developing the self through philosophy or individuation involves a unity of the psyche that creates an inner state Dr. Weldon calls dual-unity, where the individual soul is simultaneously aware of the ego or sense based world below and the divine One or Self above. Plato referred to this state as the realization of the macrocosm within the microcosm and Jung mirrors this in his idea of wholeness. After doing the theoretical work of showing us the root of Jung in Plato, ...

Sloman Steven, Fernbach Philip The Knowledge Illusion

Human reasoning is remarkably shallow in fact, our thinking and justifications just scratch the surface of the true complexity of the issues we deal with. The ability to think may still be the greatest wonder in the world (and beyond), but the way that individuals think is less than ideal. In The Knowledge Illusion, the authors show that people are a little like bees and society like a bee hive: our intelligence resides not in individual brains but in the collective mind. To function, individuals rely not only on knowledge that is stored within our skulls but also on knowledge stored elsewhere, be it in our bodies, in the environment, and, especially, in other people. Put together, human thought is incredibly impressive, but at its deepest level, it never belongs to any individual alone. And yet the mind supports the most sublime, incredible phenomenon of all: consciousness. How can any of this be possible with a mind that is so imperfect? This is one of the key challenges they will confront. The Knowledge Illusion will not only tie together established scientific facts, but their arguments will be made sensible by a consideration of what the mind is for. Understanding why the mind is as it is, and what it is for, will show why we need to consider it as extending beyond our skulls; why we should think about the mind as far more than an extension of the brain but as an emergence from multiple brains interacting. Simply put, individuals know relatively little, but the human hive that emerges when people work together knows a lot. The Knowledge Illusion offers us improved ways of approaching our most complex problems. It should make us more humble, opening our minds to other people's ideas and ways of thinking. It offers lessons about how to avoid things like financial meltdowns by recognizing the limits of our understanding. It can help improve our body politic and help us assess how much reliance should we have on experts vs. how much decision-making power should be given to individual voters. Appreciating that the mind is shared should also make us more realistic about history; instead of idolizing the great men and women of history, we should be idolizing the great societies that allowed great ideas and achievements to develop. Knowing that knowledge resides in systems of individuals also makes it harder to see catastrophe coming, because there may be no individual on the lookout, so understanding ourselves better allows us to create better safeguards. In short, there is real value in knowing that the mind is more than the brain.

Jack Pransky Seduced by Consciousness. A Life with The Three Principles

In Seduced by Consciousness author Dr. Jack Pransky demonstrates through entertaining stories how the Three Principles of Universal Mind, Consciousness and Thought work together to create everyone's unique "reality," out of which they then think, feel and act. Defying description, this captivating, profound book has been depicted as part self-help manual, part spiritual autobiography, in which the author uses his own life experiences and those of his clients in a revealing, raw and honest manner to contrast the difference between the peace, love, joy and wisdom that occur when these Principles are realized in one's life, and the suffering that occurs when this understanding remains unrealized or forgotten. The question is asked: Will we be trapped in the illusions of our own creation, or will we fall back into our true spiritual nature and essence? This book creates a special opportunity for readers to have insights that reveal the answer, and this will change lives.About the Author:Jack Pransky, Ph.D. is founder/director of the Center for Inside-Out Understanding. He authored numerous books on the Three Principles, including Somebody Should Have Told Us!, widely recognized as one of its best introductory books.

This book presents a theory of consciousness which is unique and sustainable in nature, based on physiological and cognitive-linguistic principles controlled by a number of socio-psycho-economic factors. In order to anchor this theory, which draws upon various disciplines, the author presents a number of different theories, all of which have been abundantly studied by scientists from both a theoretical and experimental standpoint, including models of social organization, ego theories, theories of the motivational system in psychology, theories of the motivational system in neurosciences, language modeling and computational modeling of motivation. The theory presented in this book is based on the hypothesis that an individual’s main activities are developed by self-motivation, managed as an informational need. This is described in chapters covering self-motivation on a day-to-day basis, the notion of need, the hypothesis and control of cognitive self-motivation and a model of self-motivation which associates language and physiology. The subject of knowledge extraction is also covered, including the impact of self-motivation on written information, non-transversal and transversal text-mining techniques and the fields of interest of text mining. Contents: 1. Consciousness: an Ancient and Current Topic of Study. 2. Self-motivation on a Daily Basis. 3. The Notion of Need. 4. The Models of Social Organization. 5. Self Theories. 6. Theories of Motivation in Psychology. 7. Theories of Motivation in Neurosciences. 8. Language Modeling. 9. Computational Modeling of Motivation. 10.

In a series of accounts, a voice searches for meaning in the edges and the corners of everyday life. It speaks of existential struggle, questioning what is seen and felt, and relating the moments when consciousness delves beneath the surface. The author reflects upon nature, spirituality, the self, and the all-conquering instant of transformation: the "revealed moment in time".

Inside the Mind of Awareness

Awareness resides beyond the mind and encompasses the mind. Through perception, the mysterious world of awareness is reflected in the psychological world of thought, which subsequently reverberates in the physical world as speech and action. The selections in this book are meant to demonstrate that even the most profound thoughts are not the source they spring from. They reflect that source, point to it, and urge us toward it—toward the simple, pure presence of an awareness just beyond thoughts, and just behind the eyes seeing and reading them. That is what this book is about.

Brian Cronin Phenomenology of Human Understanding

The problem of human knowing has been foundational for the enterprise of philosophy since the time of Descartes. The great philosophers have offered different accounts of the power and limits of human knowing but no generally acceptable system has emerged. Contemporary writers have almost given up on this most intractable issue. In this book, Brian Cronin suggests using the method of introspective description to identify the characteristics of the act of human understanding and knowing. Introspection--far from being private and unverifiable--can be public, communal, and verifiable. If we can describe our dreams and our feelings, then, we can describe our acts of understanding. Using concrete examples, one can identify the activities involved--namely, questioning, researching, getting an idea, expressing a concept, reflecting on the evidence and inferring a conclusion. Each of these activities can be described clearly and in great detail. If we perform these activities well, we can understand and know both truth and value. The text invites readers to verify each and every statement in their own experience of understanding. This is a detailed and verifiable account of human knowing: an extremely valuable contribution to philosophy and a solution to the foundational problem of knowing.""Nothing is more important for the cultural life of our age than accurate self-knowledge. This book by Brian Cronin addresses that challenge--and delivers. Written in a direct and simple s...

Henry D Sokolski Underestimated. Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future

Henry Sokolski has written an excellent, short book about what he sees as our not so peaceful nuclear future. While short in length, it covers a lot of ground, and because it is extensively footnoted, it can lead readers to the broader literature. The book provides a good picture of the growing stockpiles of separated plutonium and the stockpiles of highly enriched uranium, as well as the likely expansion of nuclear power programs in additional countries. When reading the book, my thoughts turned to the Per Bak book, How Nature Works, and the concept of self-organized criticality and its descriptions of computer simulations and experiments leading to avalanches in sandpiles. This may be a useful way of thinking about the possible consequences for nuclear weapon proliferation as the stockpiles of fi ssile material grow.

Some will think it a contradiction in terms to speak of a "practical" book about spirituality, but in James Gilliland's Becoming Gods, Cazekiel, a member of an unseen brotherhood, teaches us in a very straightforward and pragmatic manner about our divinity and our true heritage as multidimensional beings. Speaking to us in a non-condescending tone as fellow beings of the Light, Cazekiel presents profound guidance regarding the true meaning of Christ Consciousness, the balance of existing between two worlds, the reality of dreams and visions, and reveals the New World about to be born as the Old World passes away. The wisdom teachings in this book are highly recommended for all those seeking self-mastery. Brad Steiger, coauthor of Star People and Starborn, and author of Revelation: The Divine Fire.

Latha Latha Illusion and Reality - A Comparative Study

To express oneself is a basic trait inherent in all individuals. Self-realization is the essential quality that enables self-expression. One who does not comprehend the reality and attempts to escape from it loses his identity and lives in a world of illusion. When awareness blossoms in the mind, it destroys illusion and leads to reality. Illusion and reality are two different levels of consciousness which can entangle or liberate an individual respectively. With rapid industrialization the occupational life of people has made them seek material possessions effacing the significance of human values. When one realizes the void in materialistic pleasures a feeling of alienation arises. What once gave joy becomes an illusion. When one does not discern reality and the importance of interpersonal relationships and quests for the sense of belonging to the modern world, he lands in self destructive illusion. This book analyses exclusively the conflict of illusion and reality in the characters of the two novels rather than attempting to pass a general observation. The analysis will interest readers who have a metaphysical approach to literature for intellectual satisfaction.
