Peter Russell explores the reasons why consciousness may be the fundamental essence of the Universe.

The Primacy of Consciousness

Many have made such claims from metaphysical perspectives, but the possibility has always been ignored by the scientific community. In this talk, Peter discusses the problems the materialist scientific worldview has with consciousness and proposes an alternative worldview which, rather than contradicting science, makes new sense of much of modern physics.

He presents a reasoned argument that shows how these relatively recent scientific understandings are pointing towards the one thing science has always avoided considering, — the primary nature of consciousness.
