The Search for Consciousness!
We spent a week-long silent meditation retreat with Alan Wallace (author of about 30 books, including "Mind in the Balance" and "The Attention Revolution") and 50 of our closest friends in the Blue Mountains recently. It's amazing what you hear when you stop talking! I discovered that the only way to truly know what consciousness is, is from the inside of your own mind. All the neurological correlates are only poor imitations of what's really going on between your ears!
