    Recently, scientists have detected a giant neuron wrapped around the entire circumference of a mouse’s brain (A Giant Neuron Has Been Found Wrapped Around the Entire Circumference of the Brain). Some speculate whether this discovery is a step towards locating where consciousness resides in the brain.

    The brain is a fantastic instrument and we will continue to discover new frontiers. These types of neurons could play a coordinating role. But the seat of consciousness will not be found in any physical structure, no matter how complex. Complementarity shows that the mind and the brain are two aspects. Consciousness is nonlocal so the seat of the mind will not be found in any local structure.

    This is what we develop in our book “You Are the Universe”.
