A Toy Model of Consciousness and Connectomes, First Approximation

Authors: Stan Bumble

Abstract Former work on cooperative phenomena is adapted in order to visualize, to a first approximation, the concepts of consciousness and connectomes. It is hoped that such work can help in the treatment of Alzheimer Disease (AZ) and entice Roger Penrose et alia to continue their pioneering work in these fields. A set of phases are construed to contain neurons in their inactive form in equilibrium with other phases of neurons in their active phase in various stages of connection with each other. The active neurons are connected to each other such that their synapses conduct chemical and electrical contacts. These constellations lead to various incipient lattices that are characterized by the various strengths and number of their connections. Coordination numbers for each neuron, degrees of completion of their lattices and, the time of formation are important. Critical areas on neural networks that occur over a period of time are detailed. The degree of consciousness is deemed to be a function of particular properties which are shown in a collection of graphs.
