[Reading] ➸ Physics in Mind Author Werner R. Loewenstein – 12th-century.co No one can escape a sense of awe when reflecting on the workings of the mind we see we hear we feel we are aware of the world around us But what is the mind? What do we mean when we say we are aware oNo one can escape a sense of awe when reflecting on the workings of the mind we see we hear we feel we are aware of the world around us But what is the mind? What do we mean when we say we are aware of something? What is this peculiar state in our heads at once utterly familiar and bewilderingly mysterious that we call awareness or consciousness? In Physics in Mind eminent biophysicist Werner R Loewenstein argues that to answer these uestions we must first understand the physical mechanism.

    PDF/EPUB 12th century.co ✓ Physics in Mind Kindle Æ Physics in PDF \ physics epub, mind pdf, Physics in ebok, Physics in Mind KindleThis book was highly disappointing Many reviews say that the problem is the science is difficult Actually the problem is simply that the author is a bad writer who thinks he is a poet and who has chosen to write flowery obfuscating prose rather than clear illuminating summaries of the science involvedSeveral sections stand out as being particularly bad One entitiled An algorithm is no substitute for a demon apparently after consulting the references is intended to address flaws in intelligent design Even after re reading this section several times it is not all apparent what in the world Lowenstein is talking about and my best guess has him naively pointing out that intelligent design is impossible because it reuires an external designer which is the whole point of intelligent design as a creationism substituteIn between there were scattered sections where the book starts to talk about interesting
