Are we primarily matter? Or are we primarily consciousness? Is the body a machine that creates a conscious experience? Or is conscious experience the result of the interaction of a field of consciousness with brain functioning.
This course explores concepts of mind and brain in science; identifies paradigms governing research into this area; and compares the understanding of mind, consciousness and the body in modern science and Maharishi Vedic Science.
