A new documentary film Consciousness: Evolution of the Mind is now available for viewing on demand on Vimeo, Plex, Tubi, Social Club TV and other global networks with its worldwide premiere aired on June 8, 2021. This is a futurist's take on the nature of consciousness and reverse engineering of our thinking. Hosted by the author of the book upon which the film is based ― The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution by Alex M. Vikoulov.
[Transcript} Hi! My name is Alex Vikoulov, I'm a futurist, evolutionary cyberneticist and philosopher of mind. In this film, you're about to come across certain novel ideas and concepts that go beyond conventionality and some views of mainstream academia, so I urge you to keep an open mind! In this documentary I report my own findings and research along with certain logically consistent metaphysical extrapolations.

“The world of the future will be an even more demanding struggle against the limitations of our intelligence, not a comfortable hammock in which we can lie down to be waited upon by our robot slaves.” ― Norbert Wiener
Humans are evolving away from biological systems toward more technological ones. Beyond genetic engineering, many forms of the coming neurotechnologies will allow us to modify our brains, and consequently our mental faculties, by merging with technology and eventually becoming digital minds practically indistinguishable from our future AI creations.

A new research at the intersection of cosmology and neurobiology implies that diverse physical processes lead to similar levels of complexity and self-organization present in structures of scales.
An astrophysicist at the University of Bologna and a neurosurgeon at the University of Verona compared the network of neuronal cells in the human brain with the cosmic network of galaxies and found astounding similarities.
In their paper ‘The quantitative comparison between the neuronal network and the cosmic web’ published in Frontiers in Physics, Franco Vazza, astrophysicist at the University of Bologna, and Alberto Feletti, neurosurgeon at the University of Verona, investigated the similarities between two of the most complex systems in existence: the cosmic web of galactic superclusters and the network of neuronal cells in the human brain.

"Buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is going bye-bye!"
-Cypher, The Matrix.
A new book by cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman is making a splash.
After reading the new book "The Case Against Reality: Why evolution hid the truth from our eyes" by cognitive scientist Donald D. Hoffman, many academics and general readers alike may conclude that the Interface Theory of Perception (ITP) well might be regarded as the most advanced theory of consciousness to date.
