Episode 91

The eighth episode in a series wherein Mark Taylor talks with me about the mind-body problem and the so-called "hard problem" of consciousness. I continue to explain Robin Carhart-Davis's psilocybin research on the human brain's "default mode network", which leads Mark to explain Bernard Baars' "global workspace theory". We then start to wind things up with a (as promised in an earlier episode) an account of the Penrose-Hameroff "microtubule-based" theory of consciousness.
