A theory of conciousness

Interesting article discussing the nature of consciousness. The theory presented here is that consciousness arises spontaneously from complexity. No magic, no soul. Complexity of an information system IS consciousness. Food for thought.

This fancy theory is called IIT (Integrated Information Theory [of Consciousness])
