In the opening segment of their short documentary, What Is Consciousness?, The Economist asks, “It is the most fundamental experience of all: defining our waking moments and giving rise to all that we think and feel. Without consciousness we have no way of proving we or anything else exists — and yet what it is, and why we have it, remain a mystery that the greatest minds have been unable to solve.” You can watch the fascinating doc in full above, as well as Charlie Rose’s terrific episode exploring the same topic.
