We Are The World That We Perceive, Riccardo Manzotti

Video with

Neuroscientist Riccardo Manzotti proposes a radical hypothesis: that we are the world that we perceive. But this world consists not of absolute, externally aloof objects, abstractions that are described by mathematical equations, but of objects which only exist relative to the perceiver, which keep changing because we the observers keep changing. There is no need to abandon the belief in a physical world; it is only our poor understanding of physics that prevents us from finding consciousness in the physical world. It is our bodies that bring the world into existence, and our idea of the object is identical to the object itself; our experience of the apple is the apple. We don’t have to look for ourselves inside the brain. To find consciousness we should look at objects, not at the brain.
