Interesting theory of consciousness
[Robert Anton Wilson snippet reprinted from RAW Data, the blog of the official RAW site, July 23, 2010 -- The Mgt.]
Maybe consciousness resides in the nonlocal domain of quantum mechanics, "beyond," "beneath" or "behind" the space-time continuum? Local [ego] conciousness then represents the aspects of the nonlocal filtered thru the local tribal reality-grid as imprinted in neuro-circuits. Looking for conscioussness in the brain then resembles looking for Jay Leno in the TV circuits...
See refs in my books to Bohm, Walker, Herbert and other physicists who have proposed variations on this model. See also Shelldrake's morphogenetic field theory in biology.
This model explains ESP, premonitions, shamanism, psychedelic trips, mystic oneness etc which fundamentalist materialism cannot explain & therefore denies. Said denials seem unconvincing to those who've had said experiences.
