Are We Explaining Consciousness Yet?
[From Michael Lance]

The topic for this philosophy Sunday is "Are We Explaining Consciousness
Yet?" My approach will be to first review the latest scientific model
of consciousness and only then use it to show how many age-old
heretofore-irresolvable philosophical questions can be
straight-forwardly answered. Some topics I will explain:


...the feeling of being in a 3-D interactive movie
...the seemingly infinite diversity of conscious thoughts
...the feeling that we are intentional agents or Subjects in control of
ourselves
...how the brain produces free will
Also: Colors, Animal Consciousness and Creativity.

This is a discussion you can't afford to miss!
