How do you explain consciousness? David Chalmers (TED)

Different ways of thinking about what consciousness is:

  • it is a fundamental aspect of universe like space, time and mass.
  • it is universal. Everything is conscious to some degree (panpsychism).
  • it doesn’t exist. Just an illusion arising out of complexity of a system.
