This book is not an intellectual history or a common summary of modern work on human consciousness. Bernard Pars (1988), Edelman and Tononi (2000), and many others, wrote well. Rather, this book brings the powerful analytical mechanism of communication theory to influence the Baars' Global Neural Nerve Model (GNW), and does so in a formal mathematical way.
It is not the first such attempt. Fred Dreitsk (1981), an author of Pars, has long explained how information theory may illuminate understanding of reason.
By adapting its approach to the necessary conditions of the mental process, we apply the previously developed information theory analysis of the biological and social cognitive interactions with the GNSO from Baars, which has become the main candidate for the "standard model" of consciousness. The apparent canonical coupling with statistical physics evokes the method, when repeated in the linear hierarchical model spirit of regression theory, that generates a volatile dynamic threshold of consciousness that is similar to the transmission of a disciplined phase in a material system. However, this phenomenon is restricted to a similar retinal / atlas structure; a maladaptive rate distortion, which reflects its "structure" in the broad sense of the hierarchy of inclusion restrictions that work on consciousness. This view largely extends to what Baars called "contexts"..
