Filters and Reflections

filtersFilters and Reflections: Perspectives on Reality
edited by Brenda Dunne, Elissa Hoeger, Robert Jahn, and Zachary Jones

It has been said that when confronting the unexplained it is best to consider it from several different perspectives. In response to the original essay by Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne, “Sensors, Filters, and the Source of Reality,” this anthology presents an assortment of such perspectives on how consciousness creates its experimental reality. Twenty-one scholars offer an array of subjective “filters” drawn from art, Buddhism evolutionary biology, fantasy, philosophy, physics, psychology, and systems engineering among others, by which “we endeavor to infer, either intuitively or analytically, composite functional models of our world and of ourselves.”
