I would like to recommend this interesting conference. In my opinion, a complete theory of consciousness would be one of the major breakthroughs in science! However, to achieve this, consciousness researchers (e.g. neuroscientists, physicists, psychologists, philosophers etc.) will have to collaborate more closely together than they do now. In my opinion, the ‘Quantum Mind 2007’ meeting in Salzburg and the ‘Toward a Science of Consciousness 2007’ meeting in Budapest could be two very interesting opportunities to come to this dialogue.

QMIND 2007
the interdisciplinary science event dealing with the most pressing questions in science and philosophy - how does the mind relate to physics and the brain ?

abstracts will be published
by the Journal of Consciousness-Studies (JCS) UK
abstract notification starting with 1st March

Although, I agree with several consciousness researchers (1) that there is still important theoretical- and experimental work to do with respect to the relation between quantum mechanics and (higher) brain functions; I am nevertheless of the opinion that this is the scientific way to go (see also (2)). Hoping to see you at one of these conferences,
With kind regards,
Maurits van den Noort
