Everyone agrees that our mental processes (meaning our thoughts, emotions, and perceptions) correspond with physical processes in our brains. The question is, how and why? Why do we have subjective experiences at all? Why aren’t we genetically programmed to pursue survival, yet lacking consciousness? These fundamental questions still plague scholars in spite of our most advanced scientific discoveries.

The presenter, Krista Noble, received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Vedic (ancient Indian) studies from Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.). She is an Adjunct Professor at three universities: M.U.M., the Holmes Institute, and the University of Philosophical Research.

Dr. Noble earned the Veda Vyasa Award, the highest award offered to M.U.M. graduates, for her Ph.D. dissertation. This work contrasted the physicalist (materialist) paradigm with the Consciousness-Based paradigm of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It discussed major themes in neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy of mind, such as the “hard problem of consciousness.”

Dr. Noble is a lifetime member of the World Association for Vedic Studies (W.A.V.E.S.), and presented a paper at the international 2018 W.A.V.E.S. conference in Texas. She also recently spoke at the global Science & Scientist conference in Bhubaneshwar, India, and at Loyola Marymount University in California. In total, she has given over 30 oral presentations on topics related to her field.
