Philosophy is the study of existence, knowledge, values, language, and related topics that have challenged both ordinary and great thinkers throughout human history.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between science and the public. We publish articles and videos on topics of philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, mathematics, and evolution. We also organize meetups for discussions, offer research and writing services, and comment on current events (for example, the pandemic).
This article summarizes the entire book and provides you with a step-by-step guide of modules that would need to be implemented for an artificial consciousness.
This article discusses the attention schema theory. It explains our subjective experience of the world but leaves us with more questions than answers.
Knowing how a system will behave in the future helps us to make adjustments in the present. This article discusses how models form the backbone of our mind.
This article discusses experiments that show how the brain consists of competing parts and how the its architecture produces a "mind's eye" and "inner voice".
Where is consciousness located? This article discusses why it is so difficult to pinpoint the position of a "consciousness" within the brain.
Knowing the history of the research into possible theories of consciousness gives us an overview of the possible alternatives of what consciousness could be.
This article give you an overview why the intuitive understanding of perception is wrong and why it took humanity so long to recognize this fact.
This article discusses the connection between empathy, recognizing yourself in the mirror, and building a concept of your own and other people's minds.
What is nothingness? How can there be something out of nothing? Is "nothingness" stable or is the creation of the universe an inevitable result?
Quantum theory is a perfect example how a scientific theory without an underlying philosophy looks like. Which interpretation is most likely true?
Can we grasph the philosophical implications of the most populat interpretation of quantum mechanics? If true, what would this interpretation mean for reality?
At the quantum level, the world becomes less and less intuitive. This is the first of a series of articles giving you an introduction to quantum mechanics.
This article takes a critical look at the field of science and its ivory tower-like approach in society. What can we do to bridge the gap to the public?
Any model of reality can be arbitrarily complex. This article discusses one method of how to select between models and theories of different complexity.
This article discusses the philosophical foundation of the science method, from its historic roots, the challenge of placebo effects, and its modern version.
If there was no causality, we could not think about causality. What else can we deduce about the universe with using just logic and philosophy?
This article discusses the importance about shared experiences and how this forms the basis of the languages we speak and how we communicate with others.
Looking at its history and how children learn, language seems to be trivial. How can knowledge about language and its past help in today's discussions?
What does math set apart from normal language and what are the parallels? Can we find similarities between math and philosophy? How can this help?
This article discusses the limits of epistemology and addresses the arguments against the idea that we can know something. Can we even use induction?
Concepts are abstractions that permit us a description of reality and allow us to form compact units of information from many different origins.
With ontology, we were able to realize that we can be conscious of reality. With epistemology, we want to discuss how we can be conscious of reality.
In this article, I provide the most fundamental introduction into philosophy. What can we observe in reality and what can we deduce from our observations?
In this article, I discuss my personal favorite, the Socratic Method. We need to keep asking questions to find out the common truth, namely reality.
This article discusses how we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes if we do not keep our knowledge of philosophy fresh and ever-expanding.
A true hero stands up to false heroes. We need to put philosophy in practice, the opposite of a hero is not the opponent but, instead, the passive observer.
