Robert Ornstein: The Evolution of Consciousness (excerpt) – Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove
NOTE: This is an excerpt from a 30-minute DVD.
Consciousness is the ability of the mind to reflect upon its own experience. Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., author of nineteen books, suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a “squadron of simpletons.” Self-awareness requires orcherstrating these “simpletons” to work as a team.
