According to quantum theorist Roger Penrose and colleague Stuart Hameroff— the mind is like a sophisticated computer running software that accomplishes tasks and varied operations with ease. Accordingly, these tasks/operations (the interaction of cells and synapses within the nervous system) are what lead to consciousness.
Understanding consciousness—what it is, how it works and how it affects individuals—can have far-reaching effects. It appears to be more than just simple awareness of our inner and outer worlds. Some scientists believe that human consciousness and human intentions can influence physical reality. In fact, research experiments have shown that human thoughts can alter the PH level in water. Consequently, those promoting meditation, affirmations, prayers, mantras, and visualizations do so knowing that these practices have the potential to alter individual reality. Good vibrations lead to good outcomes.
In the future, unlocking the power of consciousness may cure diseases more effectively than by using traditional treatments. Psychologists must work with other scientists and researchers to determine how consciousness can improve our lives by altering our realities. Psychology21C asks: Is consciousness the realm of the soul or science? Is raising one’s energy vibration a function of religious dogma or quantum physics? Join us as we attempt to probe these issues and more.
