Album Notes
This is the premium version of Episode 67 of the Brain Science Podcast. In this interview Ginger Campbell, MD interviews philospher Thomas Metzinger about his book "The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self." Dr. Metzinger is one of a growing number of philosophers who appreciate that any credible Philosophy of Mind must incorporate the latest neuroscience, but he also argues that neuroscientists must consider the implications of altered states of consciousness, such as out of body experiences (OBE).

In this interview we consider Dr. Metzinger's model of consciousness and consider the implications of OBE, virtual reality, and dreaming. We also touch briefly on the ethical issues that neuroscientific advances will present in the near future.

This premium version is uninterrupted by announcements and advertisements. It is divided into tracks to make it easier for listeners to find their place if interrupted. The CD version makes a beautiful gift and the MP3 download version is perfect for students.
