Bohr, Heidegger, The Unspeakable and Dis-Closure: An Exercise in Quantum Neurophilosophy

Gordon Globus

Abstract


The problematic of world is considered within the horizon of Bohr and Heidegger’s surprisingly overlapping formulations of the “unspeakable.” The process of world dis-closure—thrown Existenz—is discussed in terms of dual mode quantum thermofield brain dynamics. Existence, which is sharply distinguished from consciousness, is “between-two.”
