The PRIMAL EYE gives a complete scientific account of the early evolution of fundamental consciousness. Dreams, R.E.M., waking and hypnotic states are explained mechanistically. This theory is no less than a solution to the 'Hard Problem' in Western Philosophy (aka Descartes' longstanding 'Mind-body Problem'). Many academic philosophical difficulties are immediately cleared up by this revolutionary approach. Finally collected together here are 25 years of Phantom Eye research (aka Median Vision Theory) carried out by Steve Nichols whilst at several different universities. Contents include the original BSc Hons dissertation 1979, MSc thesis on Machine Consciousness, MA on Median Vision Theory and Dreaming, and PhD research from the 1990's including the original 'Finite to Infinite-State' breakthrough paper, and assorted academic magazine articles. With some new material written for this book.
