In a blog post dated Oct 12, 2012 (http://is.gd/GgmEpp), Sam Harris wrote:

"And, unlike many neuroscientists and philosophers, I remain agnostic on the question of how consciousness is related to the physical world. There are, of course, very good reasons to believe that it is an emergent property of brain activity, just as the rest of the human mind obviously is. But we know nothing about how such a miracle of emergence might occur."
