Course Detail: O_PRBLM - Hard Problem

This is a story about the "hard problem" of human consciousness. But, as H.L. Mencken said, "For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple?and wrong." This story threads the archives of mythology, psychology, and physics. Its chroniclers were renowned scientists: quantum physicist Max Planck, mathematician Roger Penrose, psychologist Carl Jung, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, physicist David Bohm. Not well-known, it's a tale long buried in files of the CIA and the FBI, entombed in centuries of mass misconceptions about miracles, wonders, and magic. It may yet hold a key to our human future.
