AGENT CONSCIOUSNESS

Phenoscience Laboratories researches the role of the scientific observer and seeks definitions of agent consciousness in particular. This includes both conceptual and experimental work on the nature of agency, free will, intelligence, and consciousness, in the context of quantum physics and of science as-a-whole (Walleczek, 2019; Walleczek and von Stillfried, 2019; Walleczek, 2016; Walleczek and Grössing, 2016). A central question regarding agent consciousness is the following: How does consciousness structure the scientific experience of reality? Or is the structure of reality entirely independent of consciousness or free will?
