Noam Chomsky: it's not consciousness but matter that has to be explained

0 Replies, 148 Views

I just thought it interesting to hear Chomsky talk about these topics.

"It's not consciousness that has to be explained. That we understand very well. We can describe it in extensive detail. What we don't understand is matter."

Awe-inspiring to hear a 93-year-old with such knowledge, memory, sharpness of mind.


Relevant sections:
00:30:44 Consciousness explained?
00:34:27 Mind Body dualism ("body" is no more fundamental than "mind")
00:44:32 Is Chomsky an idealist?

Btw, that channel is an amazing find. Really well-fitted to some of this forum's key concerns:
Description: Exploring theoretical physics (GUTs), consciousness, free will, and God.
