"Should Being Conscious be so Baffling? Not really!"

"I shall describe some simple brain mechanisms that may be responsible for putting the main elements of consciousness into our heads: perception of a self in an out-there world, imagination, selection of attention and actions and emotions. I shall encourage a discussion on why we feel that consciousness is baffling, the unconscious, the consciousness of animals, and the freedom or otherwise of the will."
-- Igor Aleksander.

Apparently it's likely to be busy. Get down early!
