MAINSTREAM science looking for the source of our consciousness, insist its origin must be located in the physical brain.
Such scientists are certain that all cognition arises from the activity of neurons attached to specific structures, which have fixed locations in the head.
Yet many credible scientific minds today think otherwise, and dispute the idea that our human consciousness arises from physical neuronal structures.
Open minded science should always be willing to pursue truth wherever it leads, even to consider that consciousness itself may be an independent entity from the physiology through which it manifests and operates. It’s only stating the obvious: automation takes us only so far – cars need drivers, and airplanes must have pilots.
