OT: audio - Skeptiko interviews Dr. Mario Beauregard on hid latest book 'Brain Wars': Dr. Mario Beauregard Sees an End to the Era of science (thinking of us as) Biological Robots Excerpt: "I think that there eventually will be another big revolution in science and this will be about mind and consciousness. The same kind of revolution that they’ve had about 100 years ago in physics from classical physics to quantum physics. We’ll have probably the same in our own field. At the same time in parallel, like you said at the beginning of the interview, if you talk to laypeople, most people do not believe that they are strictly biological robots and don’t have any influence over their brain activity or what’s happening in their body. So, if there’s the start of really a transition within science, it will go quickly because the rest of the world is very sympathetic regarding a non-materialist view of consciousness and of human life and the universe." http://www.skeptiko.com/mario-beauregard-end-to-era-of-biological-robots/ bornagain77
