Let All Truth Seekers Be the Vessels to Carry Consciousness Research to New Heights (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu)

Abstract: Journal of Consciousness Exploration & Research ("JCER") is a publication in which scientists, philosophers and other learned scholars publish their research results and express their views on the the nature, origin and mechanism of consciousness. JCER is not about a particular philosophical view of consciousness nor is it focused on philosophical debates which have been done over the millenia. Rather, it is a journal mainly dedicated to the scientific studies of consciousness. JCER is published by QuantumDream, Inc. We are committed to truth and excellence at JCER. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/3

Cognitum Hypothesis & Cognitum Consciousness: How Time and Space Conception of Idealistic Philosophy Is Supported by Contemporary Physics (by Dainis Zeps)

Abstract: May we imagine that materialistic and idealistic thinkers were both right in all point concerning mind and matter they have quarreled for centuries? May we imagine that in quarrel for primacy between matter and mind both claims for primacy are right and only our good will is required to accept that ultimate reconciliation? May we imagine that all thinking activity of all men on earth and elsewhere is one collective movement being seen and still in progress from our side and essentially one from the side of the universe? It is only point of good will not of reasoning itself. Neither contemporary physics is about to deny it but rather support. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/2

Space-time Geometry Translated into the Hegelian and Intuitionist Systems (by Stephen P. Smith)

Abstract: Kant noted the importance of spatial and temporal intuitions (synthetics) in geometric reasoning, but intuitions lend themselves to different interpretations and a more solid grounding may be sought in formality. In mathematics David Hilbert defended formality, while L. E. J. Brouwer cited intuitions that remain unencompassed by formality. In this paper, the conflict between formality and intuition is again investigated, and it is found to impact on our interpretations of space-time as translated into the language of geometry. It is argued that that language as a formal system works because of an auxiliary innateness that carries sentience, or feeling. Therefore, the formality is necessarily incomplete as sentience is beyond its reach. Specifically, it is argued that sentience is covertly connected to space-time geometry when axioms of congruency are stipulated, essentially hiding in the formality what is sense-certain. Accordingly, geometry is constructed from primitive intuitions represented by one-pointedness and route-invariance. Geometry is recognized as a two-sided language that permitted a Hegelian passage from Euclidean geometry to Riemannian geometry. The concepts of general relativity, quantum mechanics and entropy-irreversibility are found to be the consequences of linguistic type reasoning, and perceived conflicts (e.g., the puzzle of quantum gravity) are conflicts only within formal linguistic systems. Therefore, the conflicts do not survive beyond the synthetics because what is felt relates to inexplicable feeling, and because the question of synthesis returns only to Hegel’s absolute Notion. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/4

Consciousness, Time, and Prespacetime as Consciousness Finds It to Be (by Dick Richardson)

Abstract: Everything communicates with us, a blade of grass, a tree, a river, a star, it all communicates with us. But folks seem to expect verbal communication. It is where their thinking and understanding is at. But that form of communication would be useless for we would not be experiencing it. FEELING it IS our communication with NO THING made. It has been said by others, and I found it to be true that only things in time and space which were not made in time and space can go back beyond time and space where they come from. They are things both of Time and Eternity, just as Consciousness is and just as Life is. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/5

Is There an I3? A Search Focusing Question for Consciousness Exploration and Research (by Joseph Polanik)

Abstract: A voyage of exploration requires a question to focus the search. Such a question is proposed for consciousness exploration and research. Is there an I3? The author’s notation for subscripting pronouns by reality type is first explained and then used to diagnose the situation in which contemporary consciousness research finds itself and to pose the search-focusing question for Consciousness Exploration and Research as a means for moving on from here. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/6

Addressing the Hard Problem (by Alan Oliver)

Abstract: This problem (as I understand it) is essentially the difficulty we have in explaining how consciousness arises in the brain. Science has developed technology which has enabled researchers to relate brain activity to electrical and chemical events within the brain, and through carefully designed experiments these events have been shown some consistency with the theory of how the brain works. That consciousness is real is obvious enough, and we don’t need a theory to prove its existence. Moreover, the activity mentioned above is easily related to the brain having fairly predictable responses to external inputs (sensory) and internal activity co-incident with thought. The fact that we personally have no conscious awareness of the external world during periods of anaesthesia or head trauma seems to validate the view that consciousness is a process in the brain. In a paper appearing in this issue and entitled “The Principle of Existence”, the authors submit a model which I believed was similar to that given in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Pandit Usharbuddh Arya. I have appended the Yoga Model of the entry of consciousness into matter (Fig.1). The reason I found their paper similar to the Yoga Model was that both seemed to progress through the same or similar steps in a journey from prespacetime to the everyday reality in which we and the Hard Problem exist. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/7

The Principle of Existence: Towards a Science of Consciousness (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu)

Abstract: In the beginning there was Consciousness by itself e0 =1materially empty and spiritually restless. And it began to imagine through primordial self-referential spin 1=e0=eiM-iM=eiMe-iM=e-iM/ e-iM = eiM/ eiM… such that it created the external object to be observed and internal object as observed, separated them into external world and internal world, caused them to interact through self-referential Matrix Law and thus gave birth to the Universe which it has since passionately loved, sustained and made to evolve. In short, this is our hypothesis of a scientific genesis (principle of existence). In this work, we shall lay out the ontological and mathematical foundations of a Consciousness centered quantum reality which shall include gravity and even spirituality. We will then discuss its implications and applications and make predictions etc. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/8
