A really brilliant and that s not just my opinion short book detailing a theory of how the brain became aware of itself and developed into a self reflective mind with the capacity to monitor and thus withhold response ie the development of limited free will And it s beautifully and mostly fully comprehensibly written to boot Maybe it is a good book but for me it was a difficult one I didn t understand much Excellent and accessible story of how consciousness and mind merged from animal awareness I of how consciousness and mind The Return of the Carter Boys: The Carter Boys 2 emerged from animal awareness I that this study along with the book Incomplete Nature which I finished a few monthsarlier are the best yet conceptualizations of this process of developmentemergence Highly recommended I want to ventually attempt his The Crucible of Consciousness An Integrated Theory of Mind and Brain although it sounds rather dense and academic As other reviewers stated the book is indeed dry and loaded with jargon It does not make it overly complicated to read however given the size of the volume While the model by which the mergence of the conscious mind is uite well xplained and interesting certain subjects seem to be simply dismissed as self vident or not worth getting Travis even curious about For instance the possibility of computer based consciousness is refuted in an unsatisfying manner involving ualia ualia then lead to the uestion whether one mayxperience the colour red as someone lse xperience the colour blue Again rather uickly dismissive of philosophy this age old paradox is uickly solved by some logic involving wavelengths and sunshinessunsets This was again very unsatisfactory and written in such a cut and dry manner that I was doubting myself a lot for not comprehending the irrefutable logic that was supposedly presented before me This being said the model proposed is worth reading about and seems to be rigorous than the AIualia segments It is an interesting read and deserves attention However the tone used "MADE ME VERY DEFENSIVE AND SCEPTICAL "me very defensive and sceptical that it was written as a set of absolute facts proved by logic and with a level of certainty that is not so common in science Everything seemed as if they were true by definition This is the one book to read on consciousness I m not a neuroscientist so I can t definition This is the one book to read on consciousness I m not a neuroscientist so I can t all the detailed claims in this book As Torey himself How did the human mind AI Weiwei: Beijing Photographs, 1993-2003 emerge from the collection of neurons that makes up the brain How did the brain acuire self awareness functional autonomy language and the ability to think to understand itself and the world In this volume in the Essential Knowledge series Zoltan Torey offers an accessible and concise description of thevolutionary breakthrough that created the human mind Drawing on insights from The Bubble Economy: Is Sustainable Growth Possible? evolutionary biology neuroscience and linguistics Torey reconstructs the seuence ofvents by which Homo rectus became Homo sapiens He Ry difficult problems that have luded other great minds but I was unsatisfied with any of the attemptsThe book has a very strong focus with any of the attemptsThe book has a very strong focus language and disparages animal communication in contrast to human language which he calls a device of cognitive bootstrapping with which the brain can guide itself page 30On the topic of free will the author claims that we are aware of our options but unaware of decisions made by the brainstem that we are The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online essentially observers of the inputs and outputs to an unconscious decision making process The minduipped brain s impression that it initiates wills and decides is therefore the traceable misconstruction of the thinking machine that has only half the data to go on the action alternatives it itself is generating The other half the brain stem s decision making is inaccessible and therefore unknown to it Aware of the options it is generating and that one of these is always implemented the mind concludes that it is all its own doing Without Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet evidence to the contrary and insight into the brainstem s decision role the misconstruction remains unchallenged and the mind presumes that it hasntelechy type of freedom pages 112 113 So many things in this book brought up issues and in the nd I never felt in openly and honestly addressed the true origin of conscious development in the human speciesStating that openly and honestly addressed the true origin of conscious development in the human speciesStating that gained or acuired certain capabilities in the mind without any theory or information to back it up left me with a very mpty feeling and once again the belief that science or what passes for it will always be lacking in search for an Design Research: Methods and Perspectives explanation to the development of self conscious awareness it s function and usesTo thatnd I have been investigating and coming up with better answers on my "Own Which I Will Publish In Due "which I will publish in due under the title Illuminating the Disconnect It may just be a uestion in need of little in the way of answer but in the way of how to only understand Your Everyday Art World enough to know and accept what it is and how it works within us at being integrated into our being in a way thatnables us to Why Photography Matters experience a joyful life within the context of all life around usThere were some good basic points made in this book by Zoltan about the simple mechanism of the levels of consciousness and how they relate to living but nothing new from what I read. Uage how a brain subsystem for themergent mind was built and why these developments are opaue to introspection We Doreen Valiente Witch experience the brain's functional autonomy he argues as free will Torey proposes that once life began consciousness had tomerge because consciousness is the informational source of the brain's behavioral response Consciousness he argues is not a newly acuired uality cosmic principle circuitry arrangement or piphenomenon as others have argued but an indispensable working component of the living system's manner of functioni.

The Conscious MindCknowledges the science is controversial and the science behind ach chapter deserves at least a book by itself But the takeaway is not contingent on Torey getting all the details right While we still don t have the Hsi K'Ang and His Poetical Essay on the Lute exact details ofvery brain function there is no reason to believe there is anything mysterious about the mind There is a simple model that Venous Catheters explains and integrates all the main findings of neurology psychology linguistics and introspection Consciousness language and freedom of choice are not something that transcend the physical brain they are are the output of functional subsystems of that brain Thesevolved in humans and nabled us to access imagine And Evaluate Different Pre Generated Possible ActionsTorey evaluate different pre generated possible actionsTorey how this system works how it volved and how it differs in humans compared to other animals He clears up the confusion between what should properly be called consciousness and other forms of awareness He xplains how consciousness depends on the development of language and syntax and thus argues that consciousness is a purely human phenomena And he show how this model accounts for our functional autonomy the freedom we seem to haveHe also shows how this model predicts xactly the mental illusions we observe in ourselves and others Such a creature would have the impression of an observer alongside what is observed would notice thoughts popping into consciousness fully formed and would see these thoughts as the cause of the subseuent actions It would see itself as an uncaused causal agent an immortal and transcendent soul in charge of a physical bodyWe are physical animals that have Strange Visitors: Documents in Indigenous-Settler Relations in Canada from 1876 evolved the abilities to use language monitor the senses imagine sense impressions that are not presentvaluate and choose between different actions form mental models and theories of the world and think about their own nature and "PLACE IN THE WORLD THERE IS "in the world There is much to be learned But there is no mystery to be solved This is not one of the better books I ve read on the topic of consciousness for three reasons 1 Unlike Free Will Mark Balaguer s book in the same MIT series The Conscious Mind is written in a style that doesn t show much respect for others ideas 2 is riddled with assumptions and poor logic and 3 makes bold claims that the pages contain answers to many ve.
