Learning Human Consciousness
The Ai Generation : Learning Human Consciousness. The debate over the origin of human consciousness is one ripe with proponents on either side. With the concept of a soul and the development of countless religions throughout the annals of history. However, if there is one thing learned by the achievements of neuroscience and clinical research, it is that the human consciousness is at its core essence, the way our brains intercept, parse, and interpret external information. To that extent, whenever awake, our brains are bombarded with an excess of information at any given time and consequently information is either processed consciously, subconsciously, or ignored altogether.
Within the growing literature of neuroscience investigating the extent of human consciousness and informational processing, is a technique of binocular rivalry known as the continuous flash suppression paradigm. Through the use of this paradigm, the presentation of distinct color images (Mondrians) are presented successively and rapidly to one eye can reliably suppress the conscious awareness of any image presented to the other eye for a relatively long duration.
