Comparing Physical Theories of Consciousness with Saul-Paul Sirag

Saul-Paul Sirag is author of ADEX Theory: How the ADE Coxeter Graphs Unify Mathematics and Physics. He is also author of an Appendix titled “Consciousness: A Hyperspace View” that was published in the 1993 edition of Jeffrey Mishlove’s book, The Roots of Consciousness.

Here he reviews and compares the quantum mechanical theories of consciousness by Henry Stapp, Evan Harris Walker, Roger Penrose and Sirag himself. All of these approaches are based on the principle enunciated in the 1930s by John von Neumann that consciousness is responsible for the collapse of the Schrödinger wave function. Each of them addresses this possibility differently. None of these theories are easy to test.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
