Description
Understanding how the mysterious three-pound organ in our heads creates a rich array of human mental experience, including the sense of self and consciousness, remains one of the great challenges of 21st-century science. Neuroscientist W.R. Klemm—also the author of Memory Power 101 and Atoms of the Mind—explains the latest research findings on this elusive brain-mind connection in this accessible and engaging narrative. As an entity in its own right, the mind on the conscious level can have significant independent action, shaping the brain that sustains it through its plans, goals, interests, and interactions with the world. Thus, in a very literal sense, the author posits, we become what we think. Against researchers who argue that the conscious mind is merely a passive observer and free will an illusion, Klemm presents evidence showing that mental creativity, freedom to act, and personal responsibility are very real. He also delves into the role of dream sleep in both animals and humans, and explains the brain-based differences between nonconscious, unconscious, and conscious minds.
