    Brilliant talk!. Loved the way you elucidated and teased out this problem. The problem of consciousness is something I have thought about for a very long time (I'm 65 now) without anyone in my life really wanting to engage with me about it. I will be getting your book (I'm in the UK). Thank you very much

    his binding of feelings and emotions into the mix is something i would agree with. Ive been studying my own consciousness and ability to recall situations ive been in good and bad. I HAVE found that my memories are bound more to a feeling, or more of how i remember feeling when i last interacted with that person or situation. so i guess what im saying is ive found that im naturally storing emotions and feelings as a sort of way of stacking the little details of the situation into a compact feeling or emotion. and if i need to recall the details i can recall the feeling and emotions and it links me to the reasons i felt that way which are connected to the details of what happened in that interaction.

    When you were speaking about how a physiological event changed your brother, I was reminded on how frightening losing the ability to speak is. I know its nothing like what your brother, and family went through, but, during a migraine I was awakened to the realisation that you are very much separate from everything else. When you lose the ability to take words which you know full well, inside your head, and the migraine or bleed or whatever, changes your ability to communicate, it wakes you up to the fact that we are, very much, insular beings who can become trapped inside our own heads. Luckily its a transient phenomena for myself but nowadays I have a very real fear of anything like this happening again. I also disagree that behind the injury we are not ourselves, how do you know? I felt very much like myself but to the world I appeared very different...its nightmarish!

    I read in the Seth books that a point of light somehow existed. Finally it decided to "open its eyes". As it wondered what else existed, up popped images within its field of vision/imagination. This was fun, so more images were imagined. These images became more animated. Then they realized that they were images that wanted to create their own images.

    This was absolutely brilliant. It makes a lot of sense. Raw emotions in the brainstorm. I'll be thinking about this for a long time. I cannot help but now think of the "factor 5" model of personality. This would seem to tie in very nicely.

    In your book, you describe feelings as the best way to think about cs. Because there are no unconscious feelings. I’d suggest that there are two kinds of feelings. Sensation is the feeling of data. Hot. Cold. Blue. Threat. Anything in motion. Affect is the feeling of emotion, and emotion is a response to meaning. What something means emotionally is how it feels to you, as something other than yourself that acts upon you. Beauty. Love. Ideals.

    This is such an insightful lecture and explains so much of the importance of emotions in our lives as well as our individual and collective survival / prosperity. These emotional and awareness connections to the brain stem region would be mostly new to the majority of viewers, in my humble opinion (?) Thanks so much !

    Incredible to see how this theory of consciousness could be outlined so well in the space of an hour!... including the ink to its evolutionary origins. It seems to me this has to be the right path for subsequent inquiry into this important question. I will read your book.

    A great lecture indeed. I wish I had read your book before I published my book " Open Secret - A giant leap to success, prosperity and peace". The first chapter of my book is titled " Thought,Emotion and Feeling". Thank you. I will read your book as quickly as I get it online.
