"I got to watch an event for a new initiative that the White House is doing called ItsOnUs.org. It’s all about preventing sexual harassment [and assault]. I got to see Vice President, Biden and, President of the United States, Barack Obama, speak. And I was two rows back while they spoke. It was really, very surreal.
A young girl, I think my age, spoke before Joe Biden. She was raped when she was a freshman in college and she talked all about how getting into college is hard and getting back your college experience is extremely hard, after you’ve had an experience of sexual harassment. And it was… really, really moving.” - SaturDIARY: Back to the White House

Human consciousness is simply a state of matter, like a solid or liquid – but quantum
Thanks to the work of a small group neuroscientists and theoretical physicists over the last few years, we may finally have found a way of analyzing the mysterious, metaphysical realm of consciousness in a scientific manner. The latest breakthrough in this new field, published by Max Tegmark of MIT, postulates that consciousness is actually a state of matter. “Just as there are many types of liquids, there are many types of consciousness,” he says. With this new model, Tegmark says that consciousness can be described in terms of quantum mechanics and information theory, allowing us to scientifically tackle murky topics such as self awareness, and why we perceive the world in classical three-dimensional terms, rather than the infinite number of objective realities offered up by the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
