Consider, for instance, the ongoing debate over the source and nature of consciousness. Is it brain-based or does it perhaps originate somewhere else?

I would say the brain does not create consciousness, said Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon, and author of Proof of Heaven during a recent Open to Debate formerly known as Intelligence Squared U.S. debate. In fact, no neuroscientist on earth can give the first sentence to explain the mechanism by which the physical brain creates consciousness.
