What is consciousness? For humans, is it simply the thinking brain or is it a mysterious mix involving the brain, the senses and other kinds of perception and awareness?

What do we know and what more can we learn about consciousness?

Those questions will be explored in the upcoming "Asia Consciousness Festival" to be held in Hong Kong, June 5 through June 21.

Prominent researchers from a wide range of professional and academic fields will be speaking at the event. Film screenings, exhibitions and workshops are also included.

How does consciousness relate to the development of the human race? An interesting point is raised on the festival's Web site: "Looking back through history, it seems that mankind as a whole is evolving toward something … Comparing the developments over the past hundred years to the previous hundreds of thousands of years of human existence, mankind appears to be rapidly heading towards a pinnacle, singularity, or 'Omega Point.'"

INTERDISCIPLINARY AND INTERNATIONAL

According to festival organizers, "Consciousness is a highly interdisciplinary topic that everyone has a first-hand experience with. It is arguably the most challenging topic of science and an area with great value in solving critical issues within our society today."

The festival Web site notes that the many events that "will bring together visionaries and leaders in the field of consciousness, spanning neurosciences, psychology, philosophy, cognitive sciences, education, and spirituality."

"The target audience includes researchers, practitioners, and professionals interested in psychology, consciousness, art, educators, and members of the community at large that are interested in the bigger questions in life as well as improving the quality of life."

Some of the big questions to be explored during the festival include "What is Consciousness and how does it work?" "How does our understanding of consciousness influence our quality of life?" "What role does consciousness play in human evolution?"

The festival organizers say that the event "will serve as a catalyst to increase awareness and stimulate interaction and collaboration. Practical hands-on workshops will also facilitate individuals' personal explorations of their consciousness with an objective of improving their quality of life. Our goal is to make a regional and international impact in this area. Hong Kong has traditionally served as a bridge between East and West."

Organizers of the festival include the School of Design and Department of Computing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Centre on Behavioral Health and the Centre of Buddhist Studies of the University of Hong Kong, and the Centre for Religious and Spirituality Education of the Hong Kong Institute of Education.
