Consciousness is the theater, and precisely the only theater on which everything that takes place in the Universe is represented, the vessel that contains everything, absolutely everything, and outside which nothing exists

All the visible rests on an invisible background, what is known on a background that cannot be known, what is tangible on an intangible backdrop.

Why do you deny that the universe is a conscious intelligence when it gives life to conscious intelligences?”


And this light that shines above this sky, higher than anything else, higher than any thing, in the highest world above which there is no other world, is the same light that is in man.


All the things that are really great, at first sight seem impossible.

Edmund Husserl

The brain is a necessary but not sufficient organ to explain consciousness.

Massimo Gandolfini

Quantum mechanics is not the last word. There is something else that escapes us.

Paul Dirac

For computers or robots to work upstream there must be a conscious understanding of the human programmers who design them.

Paul Dirac

More original is a discovery, more obvious it seems in retrospect.

Science is what we understand well enough to explain it to a computer. Art is everything else.

Ramana Maharshi

David Chalmers

The mode of consciousness of nonhuman species is quite different from human consciousness.

J. M. Coetzee

Consciousness surely does not depend on language. Babies, many animals, and patients robbed of speech by brain damage are not insensate robots; they have reactions like ours that indicate that someone’s home.
