time, Consciousness and the enigma of precognition.

PUBLIC TALK given by Richard Silberstein, Thursday 26th Jan ’23, 4:00pm. Location: St Mark’s College, 46 Pennington Terrace, North Adelaide.

A 2011 paper published by Daryl Bem, a Professor at Cornell University, created a firestorm of controversy by reporting experimental results showing that humans can predict the occurrence of completely random events at better than chance level.  According to our understanding of the laws of physics, this should be impossible.  While this paper attracted considerable attention and controversy it was but one example of numerous scientific studies that demonstrated precognition or the capacity to predict the occurrence of completely random events. In this talk, I will briefly review the most common model proposed for precognition before discussing a precognition model suggested by neuroscience findings. Furthermore, I will suggest that consciousness, defined in the broadest terms, determines the nature of future events.
