A Postulate on the Physical Basis of Mental Life: Special Relativity and the Brain

Author(s): David Kashani

A physical model of consciousness is proposed wherein the ‘mental’, as distinct and separate from its brain under structure, exists as an epiphenomenal part of it, fully explainable by the physics of special relativity and quantum mechanics. A methodology based on the “auditory rabbit” and sound wave physics is then outlined to either support or falsify this conclusion. Specifically, a quasi-inequality or test is created the satisfaction of which would falsify the hypothesis.
