Consciousness is Physics
To me, consciousness is a corporeal form that feedbacks on itself giving it the unique ability to see itself. Its dimensional. The more dimensions in a form, The more that form can "look back" or "look around" and see itself. Thus consciousness/mind is born. Self Awareness. Free will is the will of that consciousness in relation to its level of self awareness in relation to its corporeal form. What ever that is made out to be. Hawkins wasn't always confined to a wheelchair. He has probably experienced nature, but I agree with the documentary that his thoughts are dangerous. I believe in God and I believe that we don't know near as much as we think we do. Hawkins' theories are so 2D, in my opinion.they want us to feel like an animal to feel we are no better then dirt... and to feel there is no value to life.... which will lead to people laying down to the NWO..On point. Those with the means to finance "science" will surely use it as one more weapon to further their personal agenda

So it's called the instrumentalist interpretation, not the Copenhagen interpretation.
...Many physicists have subscribed to the instrumentalist interpretation of quantum mechanics, a position often equated with eschewing all interpretation. It is summarized by the sentence "Shut up and calculate!". While this slogan is sometimes attributed to Paul Dirac or Richard Feynman, it is in fact due to the lesser known David Mermin.
Look at all that work on consciousness! That's not the work of someone who denies consciousness, it's the work of someone making a concerted effort to understand it.
Crick hoped he might aid progress in neuroscience by promoting constructive interactions between specialists from the many different subdisciplines concerned with consciousness. He even collaborated with neurophilosophers such as Patricia Churchland. In 1983, as a result of their studies of computer models of neural networks, Crick and Mitchison proposed that the function of REM sleep is to remove certain modes of interactions in networks of cells in the mammalian cerebral cortex; they called this hypothetical process 'reverse learning' or 'unlearning'. In the final phase of his career, Crick established a collaboration with Christof Koch that lead to publication of a series of articles on consciousness during the period spanning from 1990 to 2005. Crick made the strategic decision to focus his theoretical investigation of consciousness on how the brain generates visual awareness within a few hundred milliseconds of viewing a scene. Crick and Koch proposed that consciousness seems so mysterious because it involves very short-term memory processes that are as yet poorly understood. Crick also published a book describing how neurobiology had reached a mature enough stage so that consciousness could be the subject of a unified effort to study it at the molecular, cellular and behavioural levels. Crick's book The Astonishing Hypothesis made the argument that neuroscience now had the tools required to begin a scientific study of how brains produce conscious experiences.
