We are perhaps consciously — and unconsciously creating reality… by what we think.

Consciousness, the state of being self-aware and having sensory experiences and thoughts is not really a popular business to discuss. However, just because neuroscience has not provided any satisfactory explanation for consciousness is no reason for me to quit. In fact, there is real scientific inquiry occurring. I’ve begun here to explore bits of this… and I plan to continue for a time to come.

Today, I’ve included this work begun with Sir Roger Penrose. Penrose is internationally known for scientific work in mathematical physics. In particular Penrose is known for contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He’s an atheist that stepped up to solve the mathematics of how black holes form and he is also behind a steady half-a-century push for accepting that science and physics ought to explore consciousness. Yet, he believes that something “beautiful” is missing from the science of quantum mechanics and from the discovery of how consciousness works. He wonders if that is God.
