Can't imagine where you got the idea that anything I said about superstring 
theory has anything to do with Hawkings. As far as I know, he is a quantum 
cosmologists and limits his theories to description of the Cosmos after 
"inflation" when quantum effects come into existence. Nor, did I ever say 
that superstring theory explains consciousness. All I did say was that the 
several multidimensional string theories (consolidated into a single, 10 or 
11 dimensional unified field theory by Superstring/M-brane theory) is 
consistent with the metaphysical fields or "states of consciousness" theories 
of Cosmogenesis posited by HPB. 

As for consciousness; It's HPB's theosophical metaphysics (scientifically 
correlated by my ABC theory) that explains it all (both its roots and its 
experience) -- in spite of the fact that modern relativity and quantum 
physics cannot even come close, and superstring theorists, still wrapped up 
in their obscure mathematical "proofs," haven't yet given it much thought. 

However, there is a great difference between the "contents" of consciousness, 
the "root" of consciousness, and the "experience" of consciousness. The 
difference is that the "contents" are the sensory or mental "images" that we 
become aware of, and experience at its zero-point root. Remember, as HPB 
told us -- we must always distinguish between the "object of perception, the 
perceiver, and the perception itself." The first is the "contents," the 
second is the one pointed one (I am that I am) who is "aware" of it, or the 
"root," and the third is the "experience." 

As for the "eight non phenomenal dimensions" you speak of (non phenomenal 
only in the sense that their "actions" or karma cannot be seen or measured 
with "physical" instruments, I presume) -- these correspond to the higher 
fields of consciousness, from the astral body to the supreme spirit of 
theosophy, that only the most advanced yogis, or masters of meditation, can

I also cannot remember where I said that anyone who is acceptant of the 11 
dimensions of string theory would be "hostile to the idea of four 
dimensions." There is no question that the "scientifically" described 
universe, that ignores the zero-point fields and starts with the first 
quantum particle of light, is fairly accurately explained by the 
4-dimensional "space time continuum" theories of relativity and quanta. But 
there are discrepancies and incompatibilities between quantum and relativity 
theories that Supertring/M-brane theory overcomes when the additional 6 
"invisible" spatial dimensions are taken into consideration. Incidentally, 
there is a little confusion about the actual number of dimensions, since 
there are several different string theories, and in some cases time is 
included and in others left out, since it is not a "metric" dimension. 
(Seems, that even the string theorists disagree with each other:-)

However, while the total number of dimensions is consistent with the 
theosophical theories of "coadunate but not consubstantial" fields, 
Superstring theory still considers these extra dimensions from a 
materialistic point of view, and as yet, have not correlated them in such a 
manner as to be connected with consciousness. The problem, I assume, is that 
the theory still considers the strings as being of a particulate nature and 
does not connect them with the "dimensionless" zero-point and its "spinergy" 
or "abstract motion" as the fundamental source of ALL fields -- from the 
akashic to the physical. 

For a few basic nontechnical ideas of how this new theory came about, see:

An excellent popular book on the subject of string theory written for laymen 
is; The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for 
the Ultimate Theory by Brian Greene.
