Author & Title: Andrew A. Fingelkurts, Alexander A. Fingelkurts and Carlos F. H. Neves, Phenomenological Architecture of a Mind and Operational Architectonics of the Brain: The Unified Metastable Continuum, published in New Mathematics and Natural Computation, Vol. 5, No. 1, pp. 221-244, 2009.




In our contribution we will observe phenomenal architecture of a mind and operational architectonics of the brain and will show their intimate connectedness within a single integrated metastable continuum. The notion of operation of different complexity is the fundamental and central one in bridging the gap between brain and mind: it is precisely by means of this notion that it is possible to identify what at the same time belongs to the phenomenal conscious level and to the neurophysiological level of brain activity organization, and what mediates between them. Implications for linguistic semantics, self-organized distributed computing algorithms, artificial machine consciousness, and diagnosis of dynamic brain diseases will be discussed briefly.  


Keywords: EEG, brain operation, functional isomorphism, dynamical neuroscience, consciousness
