Episode 1: Filters Introduction

Brenda Dunne, President, ICRL

The traditions of some Native American cultures confront the unexplained by considering it from several different perspectives. More recently, a similar concept was proposed in the 2004 essay by Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne, titled “Sensors, Filters, and the Source of Reality.” The thesis states that consciousness constructs its reality by ordering the information it derives from the external world through an array of physiological, psychological, and cultural filters. In this webinar series, a number of distinguished scholars present commentaries on this topic. Drawn from a broad spectrum of professional and personal perspectives, each contribution offers a unique and fascinating glimpse of how the filters of consciousness bear on the construction of experience and its style of representation.
