Impressions created by TSC 2015 conference
Towards a Science of Consciousness conference (TCS 2015) was held in Helsinki June 8-13. The conference was extremely interesting with a lot of excellent lectures, and it is clear that a breakthrough is taking place and quantum theories of consciousness are becoming a respected field of science.
In the article below my impressions about the conference are described. They reflect only my limited scope of interest, and not even this since the number of representations was so large that it was possible to listen only a minor fraction of representations.
From my point of view the most interesting representations were related to the experimental findings about microtubules and also DNA. These findings allowing a much more detailed view about bio-molecular level of the self hierarchy having at the lowest level molecules having aromatic cycles carrying supra currents of pi electron pairs creating magnetic bodies of these basic selves. DNA, microtubules, and chlorophyll represent the basic biomolecules containing these aromatic cycles. Also neuro-active compounds (neurotransmitters, hallucinogens,…) involve them. Amino-adics phe,trp,tyr,and his would represent subselves (mental images) of proteins in this picture so that the picture about molecular self hierarchy is becoming very concrete.
In the earlier posting I already considered TGD based model for the action of anesthetes.
