Consciousness

A few things I've learned thus far about our sweet phenomenal experience of the world around us.

1. Consciousness is just as nonreductive and fundamental as our basic physical laws.
2. It's all about the functional organization of information!
3. Information needs to be integrated in some way in order for consciousness to arise.
4. It's time to really think about taking panpsychism seriously.
5. Quantum physics undoubtedly plays a significant role in our phenomenal subjective experiences.
