Brain, Mind, and the Structure of Reality

Paull Nunez

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a highly speculative approach in which the hard problem of consciousness is approached with questions about a category beyond ordinary information; that is, Ultra-Information, defined broadly to include ordinary information, unknown physical processes, and consciousness. Thoughts, emotions, self-awareness, memory, and the contents of the unconscious are, by definition, categories of Ultra-Information, whether or not these mental processes also involve ordinary information.

Keywords:   consciousness, ultra-Information, ordinary information, physical processes
