The Fundamental Physical Properties of Consciousness
Robert Brumblay, M.D.

In an article published in the Scientific American book, The Hidden Mind, David J. Chalmers pointed out that the existence of consciousness is simply not derivable from our present laws of physics. For a true 'theory of everything', the existence of consciousness must be derivable from physical laws. He therefore proposes that consciousness is a fundamental physical property that obeys a set of natural laws that we do not have enough information to formulate. This presentation reviews the descriptions of the behavior of consciousness as found in the literature about NDEs and other related fields and develops such a set of hypothetical physical laws.

Dr. Brumblay completed his Medical Degree in 1978. He completed his residency in Emergency Medicine in 1981. He has served in various positions in emergency medicine for the last 20 years. Currently he is the Medical Director for the Emergency Medical Service Division for the City and County of Honolulu. Dr. Brumblay founded the Oahu chapter of IANDS in December 1998.
