[Chapter, section]s of Stephen Grossberg 2021 "Conscious Mind, Resonant Brain"

"... ??insert a quote, saying, quip?? ..."

Table of Contents


The following Tables of Conttnts, one just listing the chapters, and the other listing section headings, do not substitute for the book's index of terms, nor for reading through the countless references provided in the book. They are simply an aide to [tracking, notes] while reading, and for limited extraction of related ideas of interest.

I retyped content DIRECTLY from [Grossberg 2021 "Conscious Mind, Resonant brain"], which sounds insane as normal document tools do this automatically, and this is probably available on Grossberg's webPages or elsewhere. Still, it was important for me to do this to foce myself to go step-by-step through the book, rather than lazily skimming through it which is mostly "in one eye and out the mind?" for me. Also, it was extremely important for me to see all of the gaps in my own awareness of Grossberg's work and thinking, in spote of having bought previous books, and reading numberous papers of Grossberg and his colleagues. I was shocked at how much I had missed, which is perhaps not surprising given all of the other areas of reserch in neural networks. Mostly, I was missing the overall scope of his work, and the higher-level concepts.

Nothing can substitute for creating computer systems of his concepts, and applying that to real data. I won't be able to do that generally as it was already a daunting task just to go through the section titles for all chapters. However, I do hope to do that in a limited sense for the driving questions for this webSubSite.

I started by doing a detailed reading of the first two chapters, THEN composing the list of section titles. But this would take too long before posting this webPage in a reasonable form, and I needed this during my reading. So I then simply typed out the section titles for the remainder of the book.

Because this was retyped manual, without a spell check (lazy, eh?), there will be [error, omission]s.

The list of [[chapter, section], figure, table, other]s always starts with the page number. [figure, table] lists then follow with [fig, tbl] and its number (repectively), while others includes a grep searchlist, then the name of the person whose idea is noted.

A [figure, table] often has two list items:
  1. "title" taken often from the figure or table. Can be used for an image file name.
  2. "caption" taken directly from the figure caption or table description

Conscious mind, resonant brain: sub-section list

Re-typing the sub-section titles helped me greatly to [remember, refer to] the concepts in context, and may help other readers as well because these sub-section lists do not appear in the book. They also provides a perspective of the [breadth, depth] of Grossberg's concepts. A simple text search of this webPage may help you to browse around Grossberg's concept-space.
Many topics in the sub-section titles below do not address consciousness, but almost all contribute to the theory of conciousness that emerges.

I will have to read the book several times to get this all to sink in, notwithstanding 3 decades of reading a small subset of Grossberg's [book, paper]s. Ultimately, though, only working with code and data goes far enough. My re-tying of this material will have errors.
