  2. RE: Misreading Susan Greenfield vs. Susan Blackmore!?

    William Lu comments above: No way Susan Greenfield...I have not blown away my mind with "techno techno techno". Great lecture though.

    I hope you would be able to differentiate the difference between the works of Susan Greenfield and works of Susan Blackmore!?

    Hints: One is solidly neuroscience-based; the other is wildly parapsychology-trained! Caveat lector!

    Best wishes, Mong 12/7/9usct4:32p; practical science-philosophy critic; author "Decoding Scientism" and "Consciousness & the Subconscious" (works in progress since July 2007), Gods, Genes, Conscience (iUniverse; 2006) and Gods, Genes, Conscience: Global Dialogues Now (blogging avidly since 2006).

  3. I'm actually in the midst of reading one of Blackmore's book, Conversations on Consciousness. She actually interviews Greenfield. Enjoyable book, I highly recommend it Mong.
