Origin of consciousness and contemporary physics

Languages of publication
All great religions used the light as a symbol of transcendence and characteristic of divinity, talking about “divine spark that is inside us”. Light indicates the life; the symbol of light pervades the Bible from the first to the last page, it is the principle of creation. God has been called in various ways, but the light is the metaphor used to talk about His nature. From the point of view of physics, the light is an electromagnetic wave; the electromagnetic force is one of the four fundamental forces known today. Recent insights consider our physical universe as appeared by a phase-like transition from a universe with 10 space-time dimensions. Relatively to a new appeared model, called B-DS model, consciousness would be created by the electromagnetic field in relation to the SU(6) x U(1) symmetry group. The human brain is conceived as an interface organ receiving informations, an element of interference from incoming data and already existing data (the subject’s memory).
