Dispelling the Myth That the Brain Produces Consciousness,
and the Implications for Everyday Life
A Revelatory Look at the Evidence that Upends the Scientific & Public Belief That the Material World is the Foremost Reality—and How That Reversal Explains Our Seeming “Wizard-Like” Abilities
Whether you realize it or not, most of modern society’s thinking is based upon a philosophy known as “materialism”—the notion that physical material, known as “matter,” is fundamental in the universe. In other words, it’s the basis of all reality. Everything is comprised of matter, and everything can be reduced to matter.
But a fascinating read through Mark Gober’s An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth That the Brain Produces Consciousness, and the Implications for Everyday Life and you will know otherwise.
This compelling book marshals the clear evidence and makes the case that consciousness is the force that precedes matter—and upends all of the scientific and popular thinking that the brain (matter) creates consciousness. Science dismisses any evidence to its contrary position—a position it can’t prove–relegating the “matter-produces-consciousness” argument to nothing more than unfounded belief and faith—just another a form of ”religion,” Gober holds.
