Mind over Matter explores issues in popular psychology and science that are firstly concerned with the evolution of the human species and, more particularly, of the human mind and its functioning; secondly, it discusses how people orientate to their environments and react through communication and discourse. It will also explore some interesting bisecting roads of neural functioning, such as the purpose of déjà vu and dreaming, discuss what happens when the mind seeks “shortcuts” in the creation of understanding, and what happens at the periphery of conscious control. Mind over Matter is about the human mind and making sense of the semiosphere of information that surrounds us. As such, it is both about something – mind and behaviour – and also a reflection on thinking about the mind. The book is concerned with thinking through the ideas behind orientating oneself in an environment which is teeming with information, consciousness, and the possibilities of language and communication. The book concludes by making brief commentary on possible human evolution in the future. (Imprint: Nova)
