Life must be understood backwards; but… it must be lived forward.
If consciousness is able to abstract, then consciousness is able to survive a heat death by going back to the beginning of the universe with those abstractions? Consciousness, is able to survive a heat death by mathematically abstracting, then ones consciousness can indeed reach a Pure State.
So, what does Sir Roger Penrose say about consciousness?
In a logical process, objective reductionism(ORCH) takes you to a certain point. Your aware of this point, and you can go back and look at the theory so as to suggest what consciousness is actually doing in that state. Penrose is actually telling us about the differences, regarding use of consciousness versus the computational view.
So with regard to this phenomenological association between two people, as Stuart and Sir Roger, they are melding “the abstract” to the biology. I asked if one could see a contradiction and I think if you look at what Stuart is saying here how does this fit with ideas about entropy?
So both of them were attack by philosophers, and by many others about their ideas.
