The Brain and its Mindful Double
In the past decade Walter Freeman has contributed to the development of the dissipative quantum model of the brain and its testing against laboratory observations. In this paper the model is briefly reviewed with particular reference to the brain-mind relation and its quantum gauge field structure which determines the macroscopic functional behaviour of the brain. Memory appears to be memory of meanings constructed by learning which results from intentional actions. The consciousness act finds its realization in the unavoidable adjustments (dialogues) in the brain/environment (brain/ Double) relation, out of which the aesthetic experience is generated when the harmonious to-be-in-the-world is realized. Criticality, fractal self-similarity, chaoticity are manifestations of the coherent gauge field dynamics characterized by the free energy minimization condition.
