Where does your "mind" come from? Easy answer: Your brain...right? Think again. It's hard to believe, there is no explanation in modern science how a brain could create our subjective experience of being alive ("consciousness"). Science Magazine has called this "hard problem" the #2 question remaining in all of science. Where Is My Mind? explores a revolutionary hypothesis: What if consciousness comes from outside the body? The show is hosted by Mark Gober, a consciousness researcher and author of An End to Upside Down Thinking, who happens to be a former Wall Street banker working in Silicon Valley. Why does this show matter? Well, if consciousness is not native to the brain, would phenomena like telepathy, precognition, near-death experiences, afterdeath communications, and so much more not only be possible... but be PREDICTED? Plus, what happens when we die? Are psychics real? How could a young child accurately report memories of someone else's life and death? The implications could shift our collective worldview and even impact how we treat one another... so don't miss it.
