An unusual new idea in neuroscience suggests that our consciousness is derived from the field of electromagnetic waves delivered by neurons that fire.
The idea that these waves of electrical activity are sent by neurons and, as they propagate to the swaths of the brain, orchestrate our entire conscious experience. The research was published in the journal last month Neuroscience of consciousness, Provides more theory than solid evidence, but the author states that it may pave the way for robots that actually think and feel.
He is the author JohnJ McFadden, a molecular geneticist and director of quantum biology at the University of Surrey, pointing to flaws in other models of consciousness, because we don’t have artificial artificial intelligence or robots that can achieve any kind of qualification. Are capable of.
McFadden recreated these electrical waves in machinery, allowing engineers to be able to pull it off.
McFadden’s hypothesis shifts away from most neuroscientists, who usually view consciousness as a narrative that our brain moves out of our senses, perceptions, and actions. Instead, McFadden returns to a more empirical version of dualism – the idea that consciousness stems from something other than our brain matter – energy in this case.
McFadden said in a press release, “How the case of the brain becomes aware and thinking is a mystery that has been thought by philosophers, theologians, mystics and ordinary people from millennia.” “I believe that this mystery is now solved, and it is the experience of consciousness nerves to drive into the self-generated electromagnetic field of the brain that we call ‘free will’ and our voluntary action.”
