Why Are We Conscious?: A Scientist’s Take on Consciousness and Extrasensory Perception

David E.H. Jones
July 11, 2017

There are two huge gaps in scientific theory. One, the contradiction between classical and quantum mechanics, is discussed in many publications. The other, the total failure to explain why anything made of atoms (such as ourselves) can be conscious, has little acknowledgement. The main thesis of...
