Jennifer Reid: On Consciousness

IMG_20180918_165620“The mystery of consciousness is key, but I think its resolution is beyond us. Neuroscience can tell us many near-miraculous things, but it has not and I think it cannot explain how these biochemical charges and protein exchanges in the brain give rise to the world, to the universe that we perceive – and experience – with our consciousness. In any case, even in the purest physical sense, the brain is not the sole producer of consciousness. The entire body – every atom of it – is a receptor of whatever makes up our awareness and experience of Being. The entire body – plus the interaction of every one of its elements with the outside world, at every point, from the quantum level to the cosmic. Try to sketch a tidy, nailed-down schema of such infinitude!”
