Our Constructed Reality

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills

Our Constructed Reality

Taught by Professor Steven Novella | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Explore how different parts of your brain work together—and sometimes in conflict with one another—to construct your aggregate consciousness and the illusion of a single reality. In the process, you’ll examine a range of interesting topics, including out-of-body experiences, phantom limbs, and altered states of consciousness such as dreaming.

Dr. Novella is a wonderful man. Almost superhuman in his ability to understand big concepts and explain them in an understandable way. Check out his podcast "The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe" for more.
