3:19:05 - 3:22:30 (03:24)

The theory of everything in understanding consciousness could be achieved by having greater control over individual neurons to understand how and why signals start becoming relevant to each other as part of some bigger signal that they're producing, forming a big picture of human experience. Keeping a toehold in both cellular level resolution and brain-wide resolution is necessary for this understanding.

Brain
Summary

The brain is both specific and non-specific at the same time, which makes it difficult to understand how certain functions and processes work. This creates the hard problem of squaring specialized genes and neurons with cortical real estate that no longer receives visual input but still expects it.

Consciousness
Summary

In this episode, the concept of consciousness is explored through a thought experiment involving optogenetics and parallel robots. The question is raised whether a robot that appears conscious is actually conscious, and if replicating the pattern of brain activity can elicit the same subjective experience.

Sense of Meaning
Summary

Our sense of meaning is elastic in time and space since it can expand or contract depending on our space-time regime. Even in the worst situations, we can find rewards, power, and beauty by micro-slicing our environment and bringing the horizon closer.
