Linking Consciousness to the Foundations of Physics

October 8, 2021 11:00 am - 12:15 pm (PDT)
Hosted by IONS
Featuring Arnaud Delorme, PhD

ConnectIONS Live!

Join us for a special ConnectIONS Live webinar on Friday, October 8th, with Dr. Joachim Keppler as he presents a model of how consciousness can be integrated into the worldview of physics. Based on his research, he will show a self-consistent theory, fully compatible with empirical evidence, that can be formulated by relating consciousness to the ubiquitous background (force) fields of the standard model, particularly to the zero-point field (ZPF) mediating the electromagnetic force.

Bring your questions to this fascinating talk that explores the science of consciousness from an interdisciplinary approach at the intersection of theoretical physics, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind.

PRESENTER

Joachim KepplerJoachim Keppler, PhD studied physics at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen and received his PhD in theoretical particle physics and quantum field theory. He then worked in industrial research and development and held leading positions in the fields of knowledge extraction from data and artificial intelligence. In addition to his interest in the deep understanding of the physical world, Joachim has always been engaged in the question of how consciousness can be integrated into the worldview of physics. In 2012, he launched the research institute DIWISS which is funded by private foundations and concentrates on the scientific exploration of consciousness pursuing an interdisciplinary approach at the intersection of theoretical physics, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind.

HOST

Arnaud Delorme, PhDArnaud Delorme, PhD, is a CNRS principal investigator in Toulouse, France, a member faculty at the University of California, San Diego, and a Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. In 2000, Dr. Delorme completed his PhD thesis on visual categorization in humans, monkeys, and machines. Dr. Delorme then moved to the Salk Institute for a postdoc in Terry Sejnowski and Francis Crick’s laboratory where he focused on statistical analysis of electroencephalographic (EEG) signals recorded during various cognitive tasks. He developed the free EEGLAB software for advanced analysis of EEG signals in collaboration with Scott Makeig, software which is now amongst the most used in EEG research worldwide. He was awarded a Brettencourt-Schueller young investigator award and a 10-year anniversary ANT young investigator award for his contributions to the field of EEG research.
