Sunday and I am still working with massive drafts I was holding for a later date…..and that date is now…..
I am sure we all have heard the comment about someone that may seem that they are not all there (whatever that means)……but could there actually be something under the comment?
So how does consciousness actually work?
A team of scientists thinks they’ve finally arrived at a model of how consciousness works in the human mind — and in doing so, may have settled a 1,500-year-old debate.
The big issue is whether consciousness is continuous or discrete: Basically, scientists and philosophers have long argued over whether we’re conscious all the time or only during concise moments. In an opinion piece published Thursday in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, the scientists say it’s a little bit of both — and their verdict could free scientists of various disciplines up to do their work without butting heads.
The scientists, all psychophysicists at Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), said that there’s a two-step process going on. While our brains are continuously processing information behind the scenes in more of an “unconscious” manner, we’re only actively conscious of that information during discrete moments.
Now you know that you are not as aware as you think you are…..and this explains the lack of clarity and the complete breakdown of information.
