Why we will never solve the hard problem of consciousness

Philosophy, Science, and Knowledge

One major problem in cognitive science and consciousness is the hard problem – how neural firings give rise to a state of awareness which we term “conscious experience”. An experience which I can be aware and experience as a flurry of sensations and with a qualitative “flavor” (no two experiences are exactly alike). The hard problem is a problem that has been analyzed and continues to be analyzed, but will never be solved. This is because god created the universe, and created the universe to be of lesser power then himself.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
