This workshop offers a brief history of the conceptualization of human consciousness and intelligence before outlining the process of conscious perception of experience proposed by Qualitative Field Perception Theory (QFPT). QFPT is a contemporary theory by Dr. Brian N. Hewlett (2012) that proposes human consciousness has a default formula for constructing experience that can be explained by the rules of quantum mechanics and in terms of the divine proportions of the golden ratio. The theory argues that each human acts as an observer constructing experience from an infinite field of qualitative material that is either shared or is a set with a fractal dimension. QFPT presents for conscious observers a set-based algorithm that has implications for human agency in manifesting experiences both psychedelic or otherwise, subjective reasoning in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and time space manipulation. As such the workshop concludes with a discussion that focuses on the social and moral significance of introducing such an algorithm into AI and the further implications that may have for human society.
