Consciousness, Riemann Zeta Function and Pre-Big Bang Scenario

Miroslaw Kozlowski, Janina Marciak-Kozlowska


In this paper we study the evolution of consciousness. Considering the discrete structure of time, we calculate the life-time of the Universe including the Pre-Big Bang epoch. Pre-Big Bang scenario deals with two branches described in low energy effective treatments. Both branches are string duality related but the former runs on negative time scales. In this paper we study (with the help of Riemann Zeta function) the negative time scenario in pre-beginning of the Universe. The beginning of the Universe is the beginning of consciousness. In that case the human consciousness started and evolved according to Zeta function
