Consciousness as a Function of Brain Waves and Physical Constant Conscire

Tapan Das


This article proposes that a physical constant Conscire C - derived from the Latin con (with) and scire (to know) - working on the brain waves creates consciousness in us. This is similar to the other physical constants - Gravitational constant G creating gravitational force between two masses, Boltzmann constant K converting absolute temperature to kinetic energy, Planck constant h converting light frequency ν to energy hν, etc. Consciousness does not exist if there are no brain waves. The Conscire C multiplied by the brain wave frequencies creates the brain energy and consciousness energy. As the brain wave frequency increases, consciousness energy increases. The unit of Conscire C has been given. But the actual value of Conscire C could not be given since the values of brain wave energies at different brain wave frequencies have been not been measured yet.
