The brain does NOT generate consciousness,
it is a receiving station of consciousness.
The question of whether consciousness is located in the brain or outside the brain is an essential question for neuroscientists.A very high percentage of researchers refuse to allow the second option even theoretically. This is why they can only show successes that fit within the framework of their own spiritual horizons.This applies to life and research in general, and in particular to the decoding of the phenomenon of consciousness, for which there is not yet even a consensual definition.
According to the network lexicon http://lexToday.de, consciousness (lat.conscientia co-knowledge) the ability to have mental states such as thoughts, emotions, perceptions or memories.There is no generally accepted precise definition of consciousness [as of 2010. The phenomenon of consciousness is one of the greatest unresolved philosophical and scientific problems.
- “Our understanding of consciousness as a product of the brain needs to be rethought.
With the existing term, we cannot understand the results of our study. […
The brain receives consciousness. [… It is possible that if you have a flat EEG [cardiac arrest], you can have your consciousness, your self-confidence.[… However, if the brain stops working, there is a possibility that self-confidence exists outside the brain along with consciousness and memories. [… This means that we are in quantum mechanics and in terms such as non-local interconnectedness, which means that all events are connected and influence each other.”

Before the collapse, the state of the brain-mind exists in the form of countless possible tendencies. The collapse is putting one of these tendencies into the material world.”

But whether this brings us much closer to understanding consciousness is an open question. It is unclear whether consciousness is only the function of our complex on-board computer. It is open whether consciousness is just something materialistic to understand or something more.”

The assumption of neuroscience that the brain creates consciousness is wrong.
- “We humans are conscious regardless of our brains.
This finding is completely contrary to everything I learned as a neuroscientist and believed during my time as a working neurosurgeon.
And yet I realized that consciousness is a far more comprehensive entity than what I believed before, and the thesis that the brain creates the consciousness that I had assumed to be proven for many decades is false.
I also found evidence that strongly indicated that this erroneous assumption actually originated almost a hundred years ago 鈥?at the same time as the advent of quantummechanics.Many of the scientists who contributed to quantum physics 鈥?such as Werner Heisenberg, Max Planck, Erwin Schr枚dinger, Niels Bohr, Albert Einstein 鈥?turned to mysticism. Their experiments gave them insights into the reality that amazed them.In essence, consciousness is a fundamental part of the manifestation of reality. We human beings are extremely active in the development of creation.”
