    Glad you find value in his conjectures. <3
    Second video from him.
    Second time I feel he is confusing and confused, despite the engaging smile. I might not be the only one ...

    I find them both to be opposite sides of extreme views. It's all mind, it's all matter. I prefer Sam Harris and David Chalmers, they acknowledge the problems with mind only, how do we explain the findings of neuroscience? And the hard problem to materialism consciousness presents, neural firings aren't qualitatively identical to what it's like for the individual experiencing those firings.

    Consciousness & Mind are fascinating topics to ponder....

    It's like becoming aware and then the knowing of this awareness ....The big picture then colouring in the picture...or joining/connecting the dots...

    Consciousness is (for want of a better term) just mind blowing :)

    Thus have I heard
    " You can use the mind to understand logic, but you can't use logic to understand the mind"
