What is consciousness? – Michael S. A. Graziano



Explore the theories of human consciousness and the science of how your brain works to create a conscious experience.

Patient P.S. suffered a stroke that damaged the right side of her brain, leaving her unaware of everything on her left side. If someone threw a ball at her left side, she might duck. But she wouldn’t have awareness of the ball or know why she ducked. Where does consciousness come from? Michael Graziano explores the question that has vexed scientists and philosophers for centuries.

  1. What is consciousness? A pretty lofty title for a video that's 5 minutes and 12 minutes long, especially when Anil Seth's Ted Talk on the subject is 17 minutes long and his conversation with Sam Harris on the subject is over 3 hours long.

  2. Is consciousness already stored information in our DNA … Stored from time of our ancestors and everday it's adding information and creating world around us but in reality there maybe something else, a whole new weird mathematical reality …
