Deepak Chopra: The Great Debate
On March 14th Michael Shermer and I will be debating the topic “Does the Mind Exist Apart from the Brain?” It will take place at 2:00 pm in Beckman Auditorium on the Caltech campus.
I will be discussing quantum consciousness and the mind-body connection, making the case that any debate already presupposes the primacy of consciousness of the debater. I will be incorporating the latest scientific evidence that consciousness is not dependent upon the brain.
Michael Shermer will represent the position that quantum physics does not apply to consciousness and that there is no such thing as a mind apart from the brain.
It’s sure to be great fun.
