Certainly one of our biggest philosophers and scientists of the thoughts asks the place the self comes from – and the way our selves can exist within the minds of others. Can thought come up out of matter? Can self, soul, consciousness, “I” come up out of mere matter? If it can’t, then how will you or I be right here?  I Am a Unusual Loop argues that the important thing to understanding selves and consciousness is the “unusual loop” – a particular type of summary suggestions loop inhabiting our brains. Probably the most central and complicated image in your mind is the one known as “I”. The “I” is the nexus in our mind, certainly one of many symbols seeming to have free will and to have gained the paradoxical capability to push particles round, fairly than the reverse.  How can a mysterious abstraction be actual – or is our “I” merely a handy fiction? Does an “I” exert real energy over the particles in our mind, or is it helplessly pushed round by the legal guidelines of physics?  These are the mysteries tackled in I Am a Unusual Loop, Douglas Hofstadter’s first book-length journey into philosophy since Gödel, Escher, Bach. Compulsively listenable and endlessly thought-provoking, it is a transferring and profound inquiry into the character of thoughts.PLEASE NOTE: If you buy this title, the accompanying PDF can be out there in your Audible Library together with the audio.
