Research summary

The present focus is to understand the consciousness and how it is related to data measured from the human body. The basic approach is the worldview defined by the principles in quantum physics which have been further modelled by various researchers. One scope will be to get better explanation of the unity of which is now typically described as a mind-body problem.
