STRETCH...August 10, 2018


August 18, 2017
Myron Stratton Home
10:00 to 11:30 AM
Facilitator:  Charlie Coon

Content:  "The Hard Problem of Consciousness"

Through videos and conversation we will consider how science
is addressing the nature of Consciousness.  Biocentrism and
Panpsychism are two examples.  

(FYI:  Next month STRETCH will return to the third
Monday, each month, 3:30 to 5:00 PM, at the 
Myron Stratton Home.).

A Commitment to Truth, Love and Beauty


“Now I have to say I'm a complete atheist, I have no religious views myself and no spiritual views, except very watered down humanistic spiritual views, and consciousness is just a fact of life, it's a natural fact of life.” 
-- David Chalmers

“Consciousness poses the most baffling problems in the science of the mind. There is nothing that we know more intimately than conscious experience, but there is nothing that is harder to explain.” 
-- David Chalmers

“How does the water of the brain turn into the wine of consciousness?” 
-- David Chalmers

“Why should physical processing give rise to a rich inner life at all? It seems objectively unreasonable that it should, and yet it does.” 
-- David Chalmers

“Things are still in early stages, but one can imagine that as we build up and systematize our theories of these associations, and try to boil them down to their core, the result might point us toward the sort of fundamental principles I advocate.” 
-- David Chalmers

“Many of our ideas and beliefs about ourselves and the world are so deeply ingrained that we are unaware that they are beliefs and take them, without question, for the absolute truth.” 
-- Rupert Spira

“When feeling is divested of the feeler and the felt, it shines as love; when seeing is divested of the seer and the seen, it shines as beauty.” 
-- Rupert Spira

“The mind, the body and the world are made out of Consciousness but Consciousness is not made out of them. It is made out of itself. Therefore everything is made only out of Consciousness.” 
-- Rupert Spira
