Conscious Entities There are many other theories of consciousness besides those described on the 'people' pages, some of them serious contenders, others less likely. Are traditional ideas about souls and spirits right after all? Could consciousness have arisen through the breakdown of the bicameral mind in historical times? Is it all down to memes, or just a matter of different levels of explanation? Perhaps consciousness is simply a higher-order mental process - thoughts about thoughts? Here are a few of the most interesting and appealing theories..
Levels of explanation
Reality is not simple. In biology, for example, even the most thorough-going materialist would accept that there are interesting things to be said about cells, organisms, and species which cannot be boiled down to a bald account of atoms and forces - though at the same time we never doubt for a moment that in some sense mere physics provides all the ingredients biology requires.

Ever Dream This Man?
Every night throughout the world hundreds of people dream about this face. Several theories have been developed to explain the mysteriously recurring presence of this man in the dreams of different people who are not related in any way. The following theories are the ones that elicit the greatest interest among the dreamers themselves. Click the link, take a look at the face yourself.

The "This Man" Archetype Theory According to Jung's psychoanalytic theory, this man is an archetypal image belonging to the collective unconscious that can surface in times of hardship (emotional development, dramatic changes in our lives, stressful circumstances etc.) in particularly sensitive subjects (This Man 2013).
Wave Particle Duality
Matter and light have properties of both waves and particles simultaneously. The results of quantum mechanics make it clear that waves exhibit particle-like properties and particles exhibit wave-like properties, depending on the specific experiment. Quantum physics is therefore able to make descriptions of matter and energy based on wave equations that relate to the probability of a particle existing in a certain spot at a certain time.(About.Com, 2013)."
