Preservative Characteristic of Information and Free Consciousness — For Integrate Understanding between Neuroscience and Philosophy —
This is written to elucidate relationship between neuroscientific and psychiatric approach to information and consciousness and philosophical approach to cognition and existence. Information endeavors to preserve itself through possession of a self of its own, and defensive information is added to pure information because such ability to preserve causes disturbance in proper information processing. What is needed to overcome this disturbance is consciousness. Consciousness is essentially an unpreserving and non-informative existence, and it is through such unpreserving function that conflict and irony of information processing are conquered. This precess is analogous to that which tries to properly perceive phenomenon (information) itself through pure consciousness in the phenomenology. Moreover, pure informations obtained by way of unpreserving function of consciousness are developed into its own proper information through concentration and integration within consciousness, and this can be regarded as similar to the concept of the intentionality of consiousness of phenomenology. The domination relationship between the preservative self of information and the self of consciousness can be understood from the ontological viewpoint It can be viewed that the process of integration into being through nonbeing, where self of consciousness is freed from subordination to preservative self of information, presents a possibility of encountering ontology of philosophy. It is considered that a new possibility can be uncovered for the phenomena of neuroscience and psychiatry to meet with philosophical reasons through such relationship between information and consciousness.
