EP 66: Mark Gober ~ An End to Upside Down Thinking
December 6, 2018•54 min
Mainstream scientific thinking says that we are conscious because of our brains. In other words our brain creates our conscious experience. But did you know that science has no idea how a brain could produce a mind? An End to Upside Down Thinking argues that consciousness doesn’t come from the brain at all. Rather consciousness is more fundamental than physical matter. Implications are that we all have psychic abilities, that consciousness doesn’t die when the body dies, and that we are all connected.
Mark Gober is an author whose worldview was turned upside down in late 2016 when he was exposed to world-changing science. This science suggested that contrary to mainstream assumptions, consciousness is not produced by the brain. After researching extensively, he wrote An End to Upside Down Thinking to introduce the general public to these cutting-edge ideas – all in an effort to encourage a global shift in scientific and existential thinking.
