DOC: CONSCIOUSNESS, THE BRAIN, AND SPACETIME GEOMETRY


What is consciousness? Conventional approach es see it as an emergent property of complex interactions among indi vidual neurons; however these approaches fail to address enigmatic features of consciousness. Accordingly, some philosophers have contended that "qualia," or an experiential medium from which consciousness is derived, exists as a fundamental component of reality....

  SPACETIME GEOMETRY AND GENERAL RELATIVITY

... THIS COURSE IS MEANT AS INTRODUCTION TO WHAT IS WIDELY CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND IMAGINATIVE PHYSICAL THEORY EVER DEVISED: GENERAL RELATIVITY. IT IS WELL-KNOWN AS THE BRAIN-CHILD OF EINSTEIN WHO DEVELOPED IT MOST OR LESS SINGLE-HANDEDLY IN THE YEARS LEADING UP TO ITS PUBLICATION IN 1915. ...

  SPACETIME GEOMETRY WITH GEOMETRIC CALCULUS

... GEOMETRIC CALCULUS IS DEVELOPED FOR CURVED-SPACE TREATMENTS OF GENERAL RELATIVITY AND COMPARISON WITH THE FLAT-SPACE GAUGE THEORY APPROACH BY LASENBY, DORAN AND GULL. EINSTEIN’S PRINCIPLE OF EQUIVALENCE IS GENERALIZED TO A GAUGE PRINCIPLE THAT PROVIDES THE FOUNDATION FOR A NEW FORMULATION OF GENERAL RELATIVITY AS A GAUGE THEORY OF GRAVITY ON A CURVED SPACETIME MANIFOLD. ...

  SELF-AWARENESS AND SELF-KNOWLEDGE

... HIGHER - ORDER THEORIES AND NEO - BRENTANIAN THEORIES OF CONSCIOUSNESS BOTH CONSIDER CONSCIOUS STATES TO BE STATES OF WHICH WE HAVE SOME SORT OF ‘IN NER AWARENESS’. THREE KINDS OF EVIDENCE ARE TYPICALLY GIVEN FOR THINKING THAT SELF - AWARENESS IS CONSTITUTIVE OF CONSCIOUSNESS: (1) VERBAL EVIDENCE (THAT WE SPEAK OF CONSCIOUS STATES AS THOSE WE ARE CONSCIOUS OF), (2) PHENOMENOLOGICAL EVIDENCE, AND (3) EPIS TEMOLOGICAL EVIDENCE (THAT WE HAVE IMMEDIATE REPORTING ABILITY ON OUR CONSCIOUS STATES). ...
