Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality | Anil SethRight now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

The brain dictionaryWhere exactly are the words in your head? Scientists have created an interactive map showing which brain areas respond to hearing different words. The map reveals how language is spread throughout the cortex and across both hemispheres, showing groups of words clustered together by meaning. The beautiful interactive model allows us to explore the complex organisation of the enormous dictionaries in our heads.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Henry Stapp on Quantum Mechanics and Human ConsciousnessThe United Nations, New York - September 11, 2008
Beyond the Mind-Body Problem: New Paradigms in the Science of Consciousness
An excerpt of Henry Stapp, PhD talking about how quantum mechanics can explain how intent can cause changes in the structure of the brain that can ultimately affect behavior.

Russell Brand Interviews Quantum Physicist Dr. John Hagelin (Part 13)http://wwww.davidlynchfoundation.org/ In this video actor/comedian Russell Brand interviews renowned quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin at the David Lynch Foundation's 3rd annual Change Begins Within gala in Los Angeles. They discuss the science behind the Transcendental Meditation technique, the Unified Field, and the importance of having a quantum physicist as a butler. Russell then welcomes film director David Lynch to the stage.

David Deutsch: A new way to explain explanationhttp://www.ted.com For tens of thousands of years our ancestors understood the world through myths, and the pace of change was glacial. The rise of scientific understanding transformed the world within a few centuries. Why? Physicist David Deutsch proposes a subtle answer.

Joe Rogan - Mathematician on Trying to Measure ConsciousnessTaken from Joe Rogan Experience #1216:
TEDx Brussels 2010 - Stuart Hameroff - Do we have a quantum Soul?Dr. Hameroff's research for 35 years has involved consciousness - how the pinkish gray meat between our ears produces the richness of experiential awareness. A clinical anesthesiologist, Hameroff has studied how anesthetic gas molecules selectively erase consciousness via delicate quantum effects on protein dynamics. Following a longstanding interest in the computational capacity of microtubules inside neurons, Hameroff teamed with the eminent British physicist Sir Roger Penrose to develop a controversial quantum theory of consciousness called orchestrated objective reduction (Orch OR) which connects brain processes to fundamental spacetime geometry. Recently Hameroff has explored the theoretical implications of Orch OR for consciousness to exist independent of the body, distributed in deeper, lower, faster scales in non-local, holographic spacetime, raising possible scientific approaches to the soul and spirituality.
CONSCIOUSNESS - A conversation with Deepak Chopra and Stuart HameroffDescription: Deepak Chopra and Stuart Hameroff take an in-depth dive into the science of consciousness.*
Stuart Hameroff, MD is a physician, Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson. In medical school, Hameroff became interested in intelligent behavior of microtubules, protein lattices within brain neurons and other living cells. Hameroff developed theories of microtubules as self-organizing molecular computers, and teamed with Sir Roger Penrose on the controversial Penrose-Hameroff "Orch OR" model of consciousness. Based on quantum computing in brain microtubules, Orch OR connects brain activities to the most basic level of the universe -- fundamental spacetime geometry at the Planck scale. At that level, Penrose has proposed Platonic information guiding or influencing conscious choices and perceptions. Orch OR could be seen as providing a plausibility argument for non-locality and spirituality. Hameroff is also involved with clinical trials of transcranial ultrasound (TUS) for mood and cognitive dysfunction, and co-organizes the biennial interdisciplinary conference 'Toward a Science of Consciousness.'
