Abstract

Does the Psi Data Reveal Something about the Nature of Consciousness?

The problem of consciousness is famously daunting. The basic problem remains how to fit our inherently subjective experiences into our scientific understanding, which is based on objective methodologies. Our scientific theories are developed using objective, third-person generated data and methods. However, as Nagel noted in his famous paper What Is It Like to Be a Bat? Accessing the subjective character of experience for other conscious organisms is impossible. Our only knowledge of subjective experience comes from accessing it directly from within.
