The Meditative Brain, a Challenge to the Digital Revolution
"The Meditating Brain, a Challenge of the Digital Revolution" is a seminar about our nervous system, how our brain processes information and creates our reality. Using a reductionist approach we will study the neurons; the sense organs; the brain, it's structures and the different areas of the cortex; consciousness and self - awareness; memory; meta cognition; the development of the nervous system of animals and the Homo Sapiens brain. How our brain processes the information in digital and analog modes. We attempt to bridge science and philosophy, and some of the subjects studied by Theosophy in interactive discussions. The creative brain, holistic, artistic, intelligent, is a challenge to the digital revolution. The urgency of creating a radically New Culture for mankind.
