This article has first been published as an appendix to Dr R.N. Boyd's recent paper titled "BACK TO REALITY" which can be found here. Since the paper on Consciousness Studies addresses an important point that has stunted progress in physics for a long time, I am giving it its own space here, where it is easier to locate than just as a mere appendix to another article.
The subject of the paper is whether consciousness is purely brain-based or whether there is another, more effective way to view consciousness that explains phenomena better but is being ruthlessly suppressed by current "scientific consensus".

Toward an Empirical Reality in Consciousness Studies
Dr. Adrian Klein, MDD, Israel.
The hereby presented few considerations are inspired by, and strongly supporting Dr. R.N.Boyd's vibrant appeal for restoring common sense into Scientific exploration and interpretation concerning experimental and experiential observations in empirical range, as an urgent request launched at the beginning of the 21st Century ("Empirical Science - Back to Reality!")
In his pilot paper, Dr. Boyd questions the very value of the complex argumentation scaffold currently serving dogmatic authorities in the Sciences, which axiomatically defend misleading conjectures and their totally counterintuitive consequences. Dr. Boyd casts an annihilating spot of light on the shaky physical fundaments identified as sets of underlying fictitious constructs which are ceaselessly multiplying in all the fields accessible (and "acceptable" !) for scientific investigation today.
We strongly believe that Consciousness Studies, as one of the most recent fields opened to scientific exploration, would enormously benefit if its current misleading methodology, based on the rotten premises of the aforementioned scaffold of fantasies, would be brought into alignment with empirically supported observations hitherto ignored, denied or intenionally misinterpreted, based on a rigid and biased exclusion of the empirical hard facts. What really and most urgently is required instead, is the exclusion of the various inadequate principles themselves, as held "valid" by current "scientific" methodology, which corrupt principles are continously contradicted by observations.
