BITESIZE | How Your Brain Creates Your Conscious Reality | Professor Anil Seth

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  March 29, 2024

Today’s guest asserts that the way we encounter reality is a construction. Our thoughts and perceptions are merely interpretations of external and biological cues. We’re all hallucinating, all the time. It’s just that when we agree on those hallucinations, we call it reality.

Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my weekly podcast for your mind, body, and heart.  Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.

Today’s clip is from episode 366 of the podcast with globally respected neuroscientist Anil Seth – Professor of Cognitive and Computational Science at the University of Sussex.

Anil’s theory is that our brains don’t read the world, they write them – all of life is a controlled hallucination.

In this clip he explains how our brains create our conscious reality.
