Hacking Consciousness: Consciousness, Cognition, and the Brain

by Stanford

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Listen to renowned physicists, nutritionists, neuroscientists, etc. as they investigate the nature of consciousness as a field of all possibilities. We'll explore consciousness as the source not only of the human mind and its ability to experience, know, innovate... but also as the source of all structures and functions in creation, from fine particles to DNA to galaxies, in parallel with the scientific notion of a unified field, or superstring at the basis of the infinite diversity of time and space.

I watched the first lecture by Dr. John Hagelin. I find it hard to believe that Stanford university actually associated itself with this anti-intellectual twaddle. This is truly proof of the adage that if you are considered an expert in a field you don't need any evidence of the things you say.

Stanford credits for this... Really?

Don't look for anything enlightning... Unlike the previous reviewer, with whom I agree though, I actually made it to the 4th video before giving up. This series is border line sect recruiting. Talking at length and mixing good science, that they have nothing to do with, to plug at the end their own mistic view and try to give it credentials in the process.

Snake oil at best, it is amazing that Stanford would associate its name with this course, much less give credit for it. It should be reclassified under Entertainement at best...! Amazing also was the unwillingness to address questions from the few skeptics in the audience.

Hmm, interesting, but ???

Skip the first two lectures. Little or no science there.
Watch Dr. Peeke. She's interesting and you might pick up a point or two.

The final lecture presents the science and it's interesting.
