What is consciousness? Is it produced by the brain, and if so, how? Or is it fundamental to the universe, where the material world somehow arises from pure consciousness? From the perspective of quantum physics, are we both observer and observed? How can becoming "more conscious" help us live better lives? The phenomenon of consciousness raises countless questions, but one thing is certain: consciousness is the most profound mystery we face as self-aware, thinking beings. In volume 2 of The Consciousness Chronicles, filmmaker Nick Day talks to some of the world's leading consciousness researchers from various disciplines: scientific, philosophical, experiential and mystical. Four major topics are covered: 1. Artificial Intelligence and the Singularity, with philosopher David Chalmers, AI pioneer Ben Goertzel, nanotechnology researcher Anirban Bandyopadahay and Google scientist, Harmut Neven. 2. Consciousness and Creativity, with science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer, film and theater director James Kerwin, and artist and author Robert Pepperell. 3. Consciousness and Sex, with author Jenny Wade, neuroscientist Torsten Passie, psychiatrist Kleopatra Ormos, and neuroscientist Barry Komisaruk. 4. Consciousness and Embodiment with neuroscientist Henrik Ehrsson and philosopher Frédérique de Vignemont. The Chronicles are recorded at the world renowned Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, based in Tuscon, AZ.
