Default What is Consciousness Corner?

Hi all,
This forum is a place to start threads dedicated to consciousness, and to solid-construct scientific investgations thereof, including those from the recognized science fields of biology, evolution, developmental biology, (EvoDevo), psychology.

It's time we devoted some space to this.

As PTs, and/or members of any other hands-on professions who engage with conscious alive people, we owe it to ourselves , the professions, and the patients we treat, to become familiar with and learn to sift through the abundance of material that exists about how and maybe why we are the way we are, and how we came to be that way. We must upgrade our thinking so that our profession does not become, at best an anachronism, at worst an empty fossil. We must "de-conflate" our ideas about what consciousness is and how it pertains to us and our work. We must always remain one step ahead, not just of where our patients are coming from (their own belief systems), but of their whole nervous system. It's one good way to understand pain sciences; get familiar with the idea/context of an organism trying to exist in an environment.

Over the years Ian Stevens has contributed greatly to a growing pile of information on this aspect of our growing collective PT awareness. I would like to dedicate this forum to him.

Hello,

Brand spanking new here, and a request has been issued to place a discussion here in the forum, and this seems the best place to post, please help me put it in the right place? =)

It is about a person's subconscious gestures when discussing their pain, and how to read these to determine a location of pain, as well as a possible source (physical and mental and emotional). Once the correct place is identified to post, the partial discussion will be copied over from facebook.

The closest description of the subject involves semantic phonology, kinesics, and chinese body emotion charts. Seth Will has given an opinion, and asked that the discussion be posted here out of curiosity of responses from others.

Where should I post?

It doesn't really matter - threads can be easily moved into a more appropriate conceptual basket. The PersistingPainProblem forum might be a good one to put it in.
