Thoughts from the Outland

When in doubt, trade up:

It has long been thought that our consciousness – which we shall define here as that which we know, think and feel – is located in our brains. This has been the “standard model” since some time before the Enlightenment and today nearly everyone accepts it as a given. Much research has been expended in psychology, biology and neuroscience to find just where in the brain human consciousness resides. We are proposing that this is just so much barking up the wrong tree.

Human consciousness uses the human brain. It does not originate in the brain nor is it in any way a permanent feature of the brain. Human consciousness resides in the unobstructed universe, that realm which so many of us cannot see yet is around us all.
