A Few Questions about Consciousness Suggested By Comparing The Brain and The Computer

Syamala D. Hari

Abstract


A close look at what is common to and what is different between the computer and the brain at a functional level, seems to reveal some areas which need further attention in a scientific, and in a quantum theoretic study of consciousness. A few questions related to phenomenal information, awareness, retrocauslity, observation of one’s own ongoing activity, feeling of self and subjectivity, and free will are presented here.
