Susanne van Doorn from Mindfunda talks with philosopher Evan Thompson about his book Waking, Dreaming, Being. This book builds a bridge between Western science and the Eastern of consciousness as explained in the oldest map of consciousness, Upanishad.
Evan Thompson talks about:
How his father William Irwin Thompson founder of Lindisfarne Association, as well as his wife, neurologist Rebecco Todd, influenced the ideas he proposes in this book. The waking state as a stream of consciousness with gaps in-between. The dreaming state and especially lucid dreaming is a special kind of awareness. Dreaming as more than random neurological chatter of the brain. A state of pure awareness. And finally Evan Thompson tells us why he picked up the pen to write Waking, Dreaming, Being.
