Unus Mundus

Posting to capture this link to presentations from the 2022 “Tucson” science of consciousness conference – in particular this one on various “dual-aspect monisms” by Harald Atmanspacher.

I think what I’m proposing is similar to his psychophysically neutral monism involving a third neutral layer underlying both the mental and physical. He calls it Unus Mundus. Seems like Northrop’s “Undifferentiated Aesthetic Continuum” behind James and Pirsig?

(In mine it’s an informational filed of possibility / conceivability. I don’t need his quantum entanglement explanation – but note it’s only a metaphor to aid understanding – like so much quantum physics, there’s no real ontological commitment here, just explanatory aids.)

(Interesting, he mentions Metzinger too in the Q&A.)
