where consciousness comes from

ну, кто бы сомневался:

In recent years, a focus on brain structures and regions has given way to an emphasis on neurological networks: how cells and regions interact, with consciousness shaped not by any given set of brain regions, but by their interplay.


In mathematical terms, said [Giovanni Petri, a mathematician at Italy’s Institute for Scientific Interchange], normal brains have a well-ordered correlation state. There’s not much cross-linking between networks. That changes after the psilocybin dose. Suddenly the networks are cross-linking like crazy, but not in random ways. New types of order emerge.
