Roads to Reality: Matter, Mind and Symbol

Many new approaches to a science of consciousness have emerged in the last ten years. Our three speakers today have been at the forefront of developments at the interface between physics and consciousness.

Sir Roger Penrose has challenged the adequacy of the computational artificial intelligence view in a series of ground-breaking books and has also (with Stuart Hameroff) investigated the possible role of microtubules at the quantum level in the brain. Professor Basil Hiley collaborated closely with the late Professor David Bohm FRS in the development of his ideas of wholeness explored in their joint work The Undivided Universe. Professor Bernard Carr is both a cosmologist and a past President of the Society for Psychical Research. He has taken up the challenge of exploring the inner and outer aspects of dimensions in a bold move to expand science into previously unexplored realms of the mind. The chairman, Chris Clarke, is himself an eminent mathematical physicist who has written both about ecological wholeness and the nature of consciousness. The day promises to be a landmark exploration of the nature of the relationship between inner and outer, consciousness and the brain, mind and matter.
