Brain, Mind and Consciousness Society at UCSC, April 2015


“I think therefore I am” were the words spoken by philosopher Descartes many moons ago. Our ability to perceive and reason, as humans, has given us a one up on most, if not all, other species on the planet. But is there something beyond the thinking? And what is the origin of the thinking itself? Tanner Person and Kayanu Hoffman, of the Brain, Mind and Consciousness Society (BMC) at UCSC, joined me in discussing question such as these. In it’s fourth year, the BMC is flourishing as students from many different educational backgrounds come together to push the boundaries in understanding the somewhat unexplainable. We also had an opportunity to talk about their upcoming annual conference, where guests such as Ralph Quinn and Raymond Moody would be speaking about their research into various avenues of consciousness.
