WhyCon is becoming a global portal for teaching & learning about consciousness.
WhyCon: the human mind + brain is an experiential program of the Society for Mind Brain Sciences (mbSci), whose members are passionate about unifying the scientific study of consciousness to amplify its outreach and efficacy. Your experience is important, so we unified to create Why Consciousness Science? — WhyCon: the human mind + brain — during the 2010 Towards a Science of Consciousness Conference in Tucson, Arizona and we’ve evolved in extraordinary ways since. Our vision is to encourage thoughtful dialogue, foster an interactive, global science collaborative and develop effective applications to harness – and deliver – the powerful resources of the Internet and the human mind.
We plan to collaborate with existing organizations and institutes, and our evolving membership includes innovators in cognitive neuroscience, physics, computer science, quantum mechanics, neurobiology, psychology, education, technology and media, mathematics, the humanities, and other disciplines.
Consciousness is humanizing! WhyCon aims to advance empirically based consciousness (EBC) studies, inspire and support EBC studies in universities, high schools and middle schools and generate worldwide web & multimedia outreach integrating excellent brain science and human experience.
mbSci is in process of becoming a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit scientific, education and research corporation based in California and New York to encourage life long learning – anytime, anywhere – through programs that promote intelligence, curiosity, education, collaboration, and the richness of human capacity.
Be cool. Be conscious. Please join us and support exploration of the most direct human relevance!
