Impossible Minds: My Neurons, My Consciousness has been written to satisfy the curiosity each and every one of us has about our own consciousness. It takes the view that the neurons in our heads are the source of consciousness and attempts to explain how this happens. Although it talks of neural networks, it explains what they are and what they do, in such a way that anyone may understand.This book is also a story. A story of a land where people think that they are automata without much in the way of consciousness, a story of cormorants and cliffs by the sea, a story of what it might be like to be a conscious machine...
Yet another book on consciousness?; who's afraid of Magnus?; neurons and thought; automata and brains; the inner eye of consciousness; who am I?; beginnings and words; give me a teddy...; qualia, instinct and emotion; what's the use of artificial minds?; Magnus 2030 AD - an interview.
