this article mentions about the Resonance Theory of Consciousness.
and here's another book overview about Consciousness. Panpsychism (which I agree to) is mentioned. Yep, even a book about consciousness has some sliver of consciousness. meta! :)
first time I heard about Attention Schema theory to understand Consciousness. Interesting overview of 3 new books. https://undark.org/2019/11/08/three-new-books-human-consciousness/#

If there's one thing i can share to you today is this post from Brain Pickings: https://www.brainpickings.org/2019/10/23/13-learnings-13-years/
special emphasis on #10: "Don’t just resist cynicism — fight it actively."
#PortfolioDay My name is Emerson and I'm a senior concept artist working in video games. I'm also working on my own personal project Tankhead, mecha designs that are currently being made into action figures.
i've been getting a hang of Into The Breach. It's a big change of pace from my previous high-speed, high-intensity #mech game of Titanfall2.
"Welcome," the interviewer said, "please have a seat."
"Right, as you know time engineering is still in it's-"
"-early days, yes. Only invented a year ago."
"We are looking for an experienced engineer."
"I've got five years' experience in the field."

Please stop. There is nothing special about lefties. We are just like everyone else. http://mentalfloss.com/article/84560/are-lefties-really-more-creative
Good news for transhumanists? https://www.techexplorist.com/it-might-be-possible-to-reverse-a-persons-biological-age/26325/
I am left-handed. And I honestly tell you, that I really tried to be right-handed while growing up. (I can write with my right-hand because I forced myself during high-school) But i switched back to writing with my left. Other things I didn't even try to change, I punch & kick with my left, chopsticks on my left, etc. Because it felt so natural to me. But I still find it hard to believe that there are genetic predespositions and brain differences for lefties, even after reading this article. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-49579810
I like the fact that 'Healthspan' is the goal, rather than 'lifespan'. Go, go senolytics! https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/sep/02/the-science-of-senolytics-how-a-new-pill-could-spell-the-end-of-ageing
