Projects and research interests

Learning and critical thinking.  People have increasing difficulties in perceiving what is what in reality. Easy access to expanding information has brought some less beneficial effects: people follow hearsay and consider opinions as truths, and empirical facts as opinions. Gossip, opinion, information, and knowledge become all mixed together. We do not know why we think the way we do because we are not in contact with our very own mind. We are like guests in our own home.

Critical thinking has been with us for a long time and it is part of the evolution whose outcomes we enjoy every day. The importance of critical thinking is not self-evident, however, not even at the university level which should provide training and practice in creative and analytical thinking. My aim is to promote methods of critical thinking for students to learn and practise their metacognitive skills, which offer significant value in their paths of life.

Tietoisuuden moniulotteisuus on haastava käsite erityisesti niille, joiden uskomukset perustuvat materiaalis-nihilistiseen käsitykseen todellisuudesta (vain materia on olemassa, eikä sekään ole mistään kotoisin). Tiedämme empiirisesti, että tietoisuutemme toimii useissa ei-fyysisissä ulottuvuuksissa, minkä kanssa materialistinen tiedekäsitys on yhä lisääntyvissä hankaluuksissa, kun sen ydinosat fysiikkaa myöten alkavat tunnistamaan ja hyväksymään ilmiöitä, joita ei ole aiemmin uskallettu lausua ääneen. Aiheeseen pääsee tutustumaan täällä: Moniulotteinen/Multidimensional
