Alva Noë's Human Consciousness Speech Challenges Scientific Beli

By: Kyle Towers - Published: • References: socrates.berkeley.edu and youtu.be
This human consciousness speech by Alva Noƫ debunks the alleged myths and mistruths of the origins to what we are as humans. He believes scientists are exploring this study incorrectly and are therefore, wasting time.

Alva's keynote begins by using the analogy that comparing someone trying to discover our consciousness by analyzing our brain is like trying to find the meaning of money by looking at a bill. Alva does not believe our brains are who we are as some science suggests, but is more open to the belief of it coming from somewhere else.

Alva's human consciousness speech doesn't provide the take home answer to who we are, but it does leave us with very open and abstract possibilities that aren't typically explored in labs.
