Massimiliano Sorrentino, PhD


A short introduction

Massimiliano Sorrentino graduated in physics in 2003, with a thesis in particle physics, at the Federico II University of Naples. He received his Ph.D in Physics in 2007 at the same university. During his doctorate, he dealt with open problems in the field of neuroscience, and was supervised by prof. G. Trautteur, who introduced him to the mind-matter problem and its possible misunderstandings. Subsequently, Massimiliano has dealt with open problems in the field of biology and is currently a teacher of mathematics and science.


Conscious storms and the origin of life

This surprisingly coherent and empirically well-grounded essay argues that, although governed by blind, purposeless laws of nature, the Earth’s atmosphere—just like biological brains—may be associated with a subjective first-person perspective, and may have therefore purposely created life on Earth. The essay coherently brings together a compatibilist approach to free will, an idealist metaphysics and speculations about abiogenesis.
