Summary

Around the mid 1500's mankind witnessed the birth of the Scientific Revolution. For the first time in history this new way of reasoning emerged from the fringes of society and became the dominant way of thinking. Human wisdom made radical leaps forward. 
Today we have entire institutions and wings of universities filled with PhDs devoted to the study of fields of science derived from facts resting on theories accepted during the 1500's and the following two centuries, There are billions worldwide who would never dream of questioning these same facts we were all taught and have believed since early childhood. 
The advantage we have over the scientists of the 1500s is the availability of vastly superior measuring devices and analytical methods. Would the theories of old survive the level of scrutiny made available by today's technology? The Scientific Community has never permitted such testing. 
In this book I show how a common person can use high school math or readily available instruments to prove, and I mean prove with absolute certainty that many of our long held and never questioned scientific beliefs are in fact false.

    "If you’ve ever wondered how you have the capacity to wonder, some fascinating insights await you in these pages.” --Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals 
    As concise and enlightening as Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this mind-expanding dive into the mystery of consciousness is an illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience. 
    What is consciousness? How does it arise? And why does it exist? We take our experience of being in the world for granted. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any collection of matter in the universe be conscious? How are we able to think about this? And why should we? 
    In this wonderfully accessible book, Annaka Harris guides us through the evolving definitions, philosophies, and scientific findings that probe our limited understanding of consciousness. Where does it reside, and what gives rise to it? Could it be an illusion, or a universal property of all matter? As we try to understand consciousness, we must grapple with how to define it and, in the age of artificial intelligence, who or what might possess it.  
    Conscious offers lively and challenging arguments that alter our ideas about consciousness—allowing us to think freely about it for ourselves, if indeed we can.
