Conscious - A Brief Guide to the Fundamental Mystery of The Mind

It’s short and summarises the research into the mind. Unfortunately, with few takeaways.

#2: Intuitions and Illusions

But one thing is certain: it’s possible for a vivid experience of consciousness to exist undetected from the outside.

#3: Is Consciousness Free?

It seems clear that we can’t decide what to think or feel, any more than we can decide what to see or hear.

Sooo. No free will, then.

#4: Along for the Ride

It seems much more accurate to say that consciousness is along for the ride — watching the show, rather than creating or controlling it.

That’s a bit nihilistic but also relaxing. Just enjoy the show.
