What are the dynamics and limits of human consciousness?
Recently I have been thinking of how human consciousness can affect the reality that we understand and know. Consciousness is not a process in the brain but a kind of behavior that, of course, is controlled by the brain like any other behavior. Human consciousness emerges on the interface between three components of animal behavior: communication, play, and the use of tools. These three components interact on the basis of anticipatory behavioral control, which is common for all complex forms of animal life.
I came across an interesting study. Is the physical universe independent from us, or is it created by our minds, as suggested by scientist Robert Lanza?
- A new study claims networks of observers are responsible for determining physical reality.
- The scientists propose that observers generate the structures of time and space.
- The paper could help yield insights into the God Equation, which attempts to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity.

So, What are the limits of human consciousness?
The question is very specific about the limits of “human” consciousness and not the limits of consciousness. The two are very, very different from each other. Do we reach that level, or are we still far away from the fact that we are still in the early stages, another question is, does the limits of human consciousness affects the limits of human intelligence?
