"Parallel Reality" (CC Adi-lila 5.18)

n-d / (210)

Thompson proposes that while a mechanistic evaluation of “sense input–bodily response” may explain certain aspects of human behavior, it still fails to comprehensively explain the conscious experience of awareness. While the field of neurology has developed an impressive appreciation of the working of the physical brain, conscious perception remains a challenge. But perhaps traditional accounts of the brain as a “secretion of the mind” (instead of the other way around), could offer a framework for analyzing subjective experience as a manifestation of a parallel reality.
