The Science of Consciousness (TSC) Conference 2020

The Center for Consciousness Studies (CCS) – the University of Arizona, Sept. 14-18

The Science of Consciousness TSC 2020 - New Cosmic Paradigm NCP X-AIONS

The International Science of Consciousness (TSC) conferences are the pre-eminent world gatherings on all approaches to the profound and fundamental questions regarding consciousness, the brain, the nature of reality, existence, who we are, and our place in the universe.

The 27th annual “TSC – the Science of Consciousness” conference was held online September 14-18, 2020 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic the planned “live” conference in Tucson April 13-18 was re-programmed as an online event).

Over 1500 scientists, philosophers, educators, academicians, students and other interested public from over 52 countries were “gather remotely” for Livestream Plenary, Keynote and Discussion sessions, as well as pre-recorded On-Demand video Workshops, Concurrent talks, Posters, and Art-Tech-Health demos with Live Zoom discussions.

New Cosmic Paradigm NCP X-AIONS contributed with the following presentations:

I. Life and Consciousness Beyond Death – The X-Structure; The Nature of Life and Immortality (abstract below)

II. Consciousness Independent of the Physical Brain and How we Transform Objective Reality into Qualia – The X-Structure (abstract below)

Abstract Title: Life and Consciousness Beyond Death – The X-Structure; The Nature of Life and Immortality

Primary Topic Area: [01.04]……..Ontology of consciousness
Secondary Topic Area: [04.10]……..Origin and nature of life

Abstract: The Cosmic Worldview presents a new ontology, a comprehensive world-picture illustrating a living, multidimensional Multiverse, where life is controlled and governed by an omnipresent consciousness. All living entities are immortal “life-units”, linked together and parts of this all-embracing Cosmos. The Cosmic Worldview (Martinus Cosmology) focuses on the “X-Structure” – the basic nature of life and reality, which provides a profound solution to the “Hard Problem of Consciousness” (the mystery of perception) and the “Hard Problem of Reality” (the nature of objective reality). The X-Structure demonstrates that all living beings have, in addition to the temporary physical body, an immortal paraphysical structure with an “organic” system, which the physical body is connected to and dependent on. The Danish intuitive philosopher Martinus (1890-1981) and his collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen describe the total organism complex and how it operates through three “organic” levels: 1. physical body (temporary), 2. the “switching body” (temporary) semiphysical structure (comprising zero-point field level), functioning as a transition and transformation zone and organic link between the physical body and 3. the immortal paraphysical body (eternal), comprising a “finer”, more subtle form of energy/matter with higher frequencies based on and functioning according to different constants and laws of nature compared to the physical world. The paraphysical reality exists (albeit unobservable to us) “side by side” with physical reality. The switching body structure is connected to the physical brain structure and functions as a paraphysical extension of the brain. After death the contact with the physical body is lost and life and consciousness continue through the paraphysical body at the paraphysical level. The total organism complex (physical, semiphysical, paraphysical) is fundamentally built up by different combinations of seven extremely subtle qualitative “basic energies”. Everything in life and reality is built up by these basic energies (thoughts, feelings, memories, physical matter, paraphysical matter etc.) and they constitute different planes of existence, e.g.: the physical world and paraphysical dimensions we visit between our physical lives. The paraphysical organism is very extensive, comprising a complex organic system including, for example, the “talent cores” or “ability-nucs”. The main functions of these paraphysical stable storage units are to store and accumulate all our personal experiences, knowledge, abilities, skills and qualities in order to make it possible for us to reuse and develop them, including to take them with us from life to life. The talent cores and their functions are prerequisites for the development of all forms of life and evolutionary processes. Specialized talent cores constitute a personal “perception archive” and play a major role in the creation of qualia at all levels. The X-Structure demonstrates that life and consciousness are independent of the physical body, and “to die” just implies a transition from physical life to a paraphysical continuation of life. The X-Structure also describes the process of reincarnation and explains past-life memories, near-death experiences, after death communication etc. NCP X-AIONS, New Cosmic Paradigm with Advanced Institute of Ontological Principles and New Science is working on The X-Research Project – The Ontology of The Cosmic Worldview.

II.  Consciousness Independent of the Physical Brain and How we Transform Objective Reality into Qualia – The X-Structure

Abstract Title: Consciousness Independent of the Physical Brain and How we Transform Objective Reality into Qualia – The X-Structure

Primary Topic Area: [01.05]……..Qualia
Secondary Topic Area: [01.08]……..The “hard problem” and the explanatory gap

Abstract: The ontology of the Cosmic Worldview (based on Martinus Cosmology) focuses on the “X-Structure” – the basic nature of life and reality, as this primordial form is unknown by man, the Danish intuitive philosopher Martinus (1890-1981) expressed it by the letter “X”. This fundamental X-Structure is in principle the same for all forms of life and its main function is continuous creation of consciousness. The X-Structure operates via the “Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process” – X-RCT Process: the bidirectional manifestation-perception process from unmanifested initial reality into manifested objective reality (manifestation) and the experience of it as qualia subjective reality – consciousness (perception). The understanding of this fundamental structure of life and the X-RCT Process gives an insight into reality as it is (the nature of objective reality) and, not least, the experience of it as qualia (the perception process and subjective reality). A profound solution to the “Hard Problem of Consciousness” (the mystery of perception, qualia) and the “Hard Problem of Reality” (the nature of objective reality). The X-Structure demonstrates that all living beings have, in addition to the temporary physical body, an immortal paraphysical structure with an “organic” system, which the physical body is connected to and dependent on. Martinus and his collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen describe the total organism complex and how it operates through three “organic” levels: Physical (temporary), Semiphysical (temporary), Paraphysical (eternal). Incoming objective impulses entering via the physical organism and the results/products of the physical processes are moving on to the semiphysical “switching body”, which functions as a transition and transformation zone and link between the physical body and paraphysical body. The primary transformation and perception processes take place in the immortal paraphysical organism, the “eternal body”, and are independent of the physical organism and the switching body. It is especially at this paraphysical level that objective reality is transformed into qualia i.e.: immaterial, phenomena only existing for the subject/the I – “the subjective reality complex”. The paraphysical organism is very extensive, comprising a complex organic system including for example, the “talent cores”/”ability-nucs”, stable storage units whose main functions are to accumulate all our personal experiences, abilities, qualities, etc., in order to make it possible for us to reuse and develop them, including to take them with us from life to life. The talent cores are prerequisites for the development of all forms of life, and they play a major role in the creation of qualia at all levels and dimensions. Specialized talent cores constitute a personal “perception archive” and the information stored in these talent cores gives “resonance” to new incoming objective impulses and influences how we transform, interpret and act on stimuli. The X-Structure demonstrates that consciousness is independent of the physical body and constitutes a personal, subjective, immaterial reality that our personal I, in interaction with our total organism, particularly our paraphysical organism and its organic functions, continuously generates.
