The Fabric of Consciousness
The Fabric of Consciousness is an invitation to thinking around the meaning of the terms consciousness, reality, logics, truth, and human. It also centers on the mind, in that with the mind, we can attend to what the world, ourselves, and others have to say. Is the mind a tool for logics, coherence, and the grasping of emotions?
This book comes at a time when predictive AI and definitions of intelligence are expected to overwhelm humans with logics and evidence that anchor to a reality constructed with strong and reasonable arguments. In the meantime, and in the middle of a turmoil of words, dissolving truths, and ambiguity, new technologies such as AI and the laws that come with them are emerging.
