The work of consciousness researcher Stanislas Dehaene

Stanislas Dehaene

http://www.unicog.org/biblio/Author/DEHAENE-S.html

This top level neuroscience/consciousness researcher is well worth reading – for example, on numbers and on language/reading in the context of “Consciousness and the Brain,” the title of his most recent book, and also in many other articles.

He is a total reductionist but his work over the last 20 years is very informative indeed. Through work in his lab, he has now identified four “signatures of consciousness” and gives the most detailed and up-to-date account I have seen about brain processing by assemblies of neurons (in a Global Neuronal Workspace model). He describes the extraordinary enormous amount of silent work done by “preconscious” and “subliminal” processes. He gives the unconscious its due, in a way, while at the same time dismissing the possibility of precognition.

I wonder if Dean Radin or others at IONS have or would utilize the latest versions of all three imaging techniques Dehaene uses in his lab to assess brain indicators and conscious awareness when correct remote viewing impressions are obtained. Dehaene won’t do it, but someone should.

Numbers and letters are very difficult to remote view. I first learned about two kinds of numbers from Dehaene’s book  “The Number Sense”. Subitizable numbers (1 through 3 or 4) and the rest of them. The quantity of subitizable numbers is instantly known, without counting. Research indicates that the brain uses different circuits for subitizable and non-subitizable numbers.

Dehaene seems to think that mathematical modeling of neuron processes in the Global Neuronal Workspace will be the scientific answer to the issue of consciousness. His team has even constructed math models which though very simple do replicate patterns which the brain produces. However, there is plenty of evidence that this approach leaves out valid empirical data showing that consciousness has access to information not available in the immediate environment, and across time too, and that this reductionist approach cannot be the whole answer, even when the algorithms get much more complex and more closely approximate human brain functioning.

* TEN THOUSAND ROADS REMOTE VIEWING AND DOWSING PROJECT

Since its opening in 2003, the TKR Project has created and sponsored online opportunities for Remote Viewers and Dowsers. We provide free information, and community for all viewers (of all psychic methods, backgrounds, experience, and perspectives on psi), and an array of software utilities and projects offering real-time viewing within an appropriate RV protocol.

The Ten Thousand Roads (aka TKR) project is independently managed and webmastered by a diverse collection of viewers from around the "online RV field". All viewers from all paths are welcome. Everyone has an opinion and don't think any you see represent TKR (even if volunteer staff, who are viewers too, say it) or the RV-subject or the RV-field: for every viewer with one viewpoint, there are many with different perspectives too. If you don't see yours represented, step up and add it!

Feel welcome to excerpt text or screenshots to communicate about the project or RV, and we always appreciate links back to us! Try this link:
http://www.dojopsi.info/forum/ for the forum, or
http://www.dojopsi.com/tkr/ for the hands-on viewing area.

* Quotable Quotes

This clearly indicated that belief and disbelief played some kind of psychological role regarding positive and negative manifestations of ESP. [ . . . ] That the basis for rejecting and debunking ESP might not reside in logic and reason, but in the fact that disbelievers were dysfunctional regarding it, came as something of a bombshell.
-- Ingo Swann
If you [...] don't speak up and shout down the skeptics, then it's YOUR nascent superpowers that are quailing before their ridiculous stupidities. [...] The WorldWide Web is yours, you know. Not theirs.
-- Ingo Swann
In other words, all of us are more the same than we are different. That we give overwhelming attention to our perceived differences gives rise to much of the human drama.
-- Ingo Swann
