How to Really Solve the Mind-Body Problem (9)

Abstract: The solution of the mind-body problem can be summarized as follows: Since the scientific/physicalist representation cannot explain the phenomenon of consciousness, and the spiritualist/phenomenological representation cannot explain the neural correlates of consciousness, it is necessary to find a new dimension that includes both looks. This is the complex dimension, of which only the metaprinciple … Read more

How to Really Solve the Mind-Body Problem (7)

Abstract: Stratium is a theory based on the complex dimension of the brain. This includes on the one hand the horizontal complexion of neural groups processing signals of the same qualitative nature, on the other hand the vertical complexion of a new group overlapping the previous ones to synthesize a new qualitative symbolism. The conscious … Read more

Neurocognitive Mechanisms by Gualtiero Piccinini, critical review

Abstract: Neurocognitive Mechanisms (2020), by Gualtiero Piccinini, is a philosophical and neuroscientific work, seeking to ground cognition and its phenomena in a comprehensive neurocomputational theory. But the philosophical treatment is wrong. The introduction of “aspects” of a single level of reality also introduces something that looks independently of that single level. We fall back on … Read more

They were popularized in particular by Daniel Kahneman in ‘System 1 / System 2, The Two Speeds of Thought‘ (2012). If the book has been so successful, it is because it is easy to … Read more

Mental hierarchy supported by graph theory

Abstract : The 1st part of the article summarizes the theory of mind called Stratium, the only one to date to fully explain consciousness even in its phenomenal aspect. If you already know it, jump straight to the 2nd part, which explains the nature of the new mathematical proof fleshing out graph theory. The supposed regularity of phase transitions in very large graphs is confirmed and allows predictions about their behavior. Part 3 explains how Stratium is strengthened as a model of the mind by this evidence. Phase transitions are the potential support for the symbolic coding of information by neural groups, as well as its hierarchical nesting, from 1st rank neurons to the workspace of consciousness.
