About Me: I am the author of a new book about Consciousness. It details a new theory of Consciousness and intended to solve the mind-body problem and the meta-problem of consciousness. My book could be found here - https://thepertinentpress.co.uk/pooja-soni
Academically I do not have a degree as I dropped out of a course in engineering after completing two out of 4 years.
The Problem: I have been rejected by universities when I applied for Masters in Philosophy and also when I applied for 'Phd by publication' (using my book as a thesis) because I do not hold a bachelor's degree.
I am very keen to enter academia after having spent 8 years in doing independent research in the field of Consciousness.
What would you suggest me to do?
Should I take up a bachelor's degree?
Or wait to see if any universities could treat me as a exception, given the high quality book that I have produced?
Or there is an alternative option I am unaware of?
Thank you so much.
