Re: [Mind and Brain] Your opinion?

Hi Dr. d and Chevy,
I don't think any theory of "consciousness" can be complete unless it
definitively explains the 'qualia' (not the contents but the experience) of
consciousness, along with the actual mechanisms that transform the disparate images of
perception, subsequently consolidated in the brain's overall em field, into a
holistic unity that is perceived by an apparent zero-point center of
awareness. These "images" being the only 'contents of consciousness' there are.
Therefore, the 'bps' theory might be better called a theory of cognition. Or,
as you say, a "theory of brain processing."
In lieu of a better explanation, I still subscribe to the concept that
consciousness (awareness, will, qualia, etc.) is an a priori function of the
ubiquitous absolute zero-point itself (that cannot be explained scientifically)...
And, the "contents of consciousness" (thoughts, sensory images, dreams,
imaginations, memories, etc.) are carried by the higher order hyperspace fields that
hierarchically, in fractal descent, underlie the electromagnetic brain fields
that carry the consolidated (i.e., holographic) images of its processing
through each sensory channel on the neuralogical level.
These brain field images are transformed through the higher order (mind,
memory, etc.) fields by inductive resonance process... To where, at the highest
order hyperspace field closest to the zero-point, they are reconstructed (as
virtual holographic images) and detectable by a near infinitely high order
coherent energy ray willfully projected and reflected back to the zero-point center
of perception that is particular to each sensory channel's input source. If
individual consciousness is then considered as being centered in a homunculus
-- since all zero-points are entangled with each other by their own nature of
being metrically dimensionless -- it would eliminate the possibility of
refutation by the argument of 'infinite regress" or "reductio ad absurdum."
This model would account for not only the non locality of consciousness, but
also all psychic, dream, and body positional control phenomena linked directly
to our awareness, will, thoughts, imaginations, emotions, autonomic memories,
instinctive and habitually trained responses, kinesthetic body image, etc.
(The last being constructed and holographically imaged in another resonant
field of the brain's frontal lobe kinesthetic cortex linked directly to the
brains rear lobe visual cortex generated field.) Thus, essentially implying that
the brain and all its mechanisms of consciousness are entirely holographic as
well as analog computational in nature. (Not, of course, ruling out any
quantum theory explaining the brain's neurological processes themselves.) I also see
the model as being entirely consistent with superstring/M-brane and
holographic paradigm theories.
What do you think of this holistic approach to consciousness study, and how
do you think it could integrate with the 'bps' model or any other QM or QFT
model that might be appropriate in explaining the brain processing of the
intermediate, lower order 'em' consciousness field holograms, prior to or
simultaneously with their linkages to the higher order fields of mind and memory and,
ultimately, awareness and will?
