Are these recent quotations by scientist Professor Donald Hoffman an indication of a shift in scientific acceptance of the mystic experience of Reality?
They almost make you wonder if he is repeating what he’s read here! (which, I hasten to add, I’m sure he hasn’t) :
Consciousness is “subjective”, “individual”;
Consciousness “is not made up by the brain”;
There are … “no experiments that prove consciousness is made up by the brain”;
“Everything is consciousness”;
“Consciousness is ultimately fundamental to the universe”.
Donald David Hoffman is an American cognitive psychologist and popular science author.
