Are We Really “such stuff as dreams are made on”?

Chris Nunn


A type of panprotopsychist theory is briefly described that views energy eigenstate manifestations as accompanied by protopsychist elements termed SoSs (scintillae of subjectivity). These are pictured as threads of ‘real time’, a concept distinct from the metric ‘clock time’ of relativity theory and everyday usage. Such threads are woven in the brain into patterns that constitute the flow of our conscious experience (only some of which gets into neural memories and is reportable). There is surprisingly strong evidence that these patterns can persist, from a clock time perspective, independently of their originating brains. The theory makes a strong, in principle testable, prediction that conscious mind related violations of energy conservation should prove discoverable.
