Consciousness as Evolutionary Process based on Coherent States

Fritz-Albert Popp


Consciousness, which is based on Descartes statement “cogito ergo sum” refers to our capacity of asking questions rather to statements about the so-called reality. It concerns the field of potential information instead of the so-called actual information. In order to describe its contents we like to suggest a measure of potential information in terms of the capacity of actualities in the possible contents. This definition is able to include a variety of relevant consequences i.e. the appearance of a memory, the question of time down to relation of molecular events (biophotons). Consciousness works for evolutionary purposes which is not a matter of fact but a process. We like to add that the improvement and the optimization of consciousness is at the same time the most important healing power of our life.
