I also appreciate MAs postings but can’t make heads or tails of them.
I’d be curious @Michael Allen if there were a contemporary philosopher of mind who shares a similar approach to the mbp as you. You’ve reference the work of Metzinger a few times as well as Dennett. Do their approaches to the mbp parallel your own?
Or do you feel that your conception ofand/or approach to the mbp is novel and unique?
Sometimes sharing the work of established thinkers that parallels your own can be helpful.
Dennett for me helped "turn the entire study upside-down"--my favorite quote
"A scholar is a library's way of creating another library." -> i.e. expanding notions after kicking down the Cartesian theatre (or circus).
Metzinger's "Ego Tunnel" and "Being No-one" helped dispel other myths...I cannot enumerate them all here but I can say that I am intrigued with his method of study by examining where the phenomenal self-model breaks down.
