    Sorry Constance. I suppose I’m just frustrated. Of course I don’t want you to stop asking questions. I have actually appreciated your conversation with MA over the past few weeks. We know you value phenomenology. If there is anything we may have...

    I think I am right in saying that I have read a passage from PC expressing the view that animals and the mentally handicapped do not have phen cs... I haven’t read anymore of his work since tbh. One must be prepared to ditch theories if they come...

    Just seen this from "Professor" Simon - usually a very sensible and well researched YouTube channel. The guy has worked in TV documentary making and he's no push-over, I don't think. He has some good contacts as shown by his other "ordinary"...

    So you don’t think phenomenal consciousness is a field emitted by the brain?

    Gene and Randall, you may want to have Salas on as a guest.

    This time Leslie talks about the front page stories she co-authored for The New York Times, and her book about life after death. Randall and I felt we had only just begun to explore the latter when the show ended, and so we had her back on this...

    Wont't have the time to listen to the show for a while (I also have a few other episodes still waiting in line because of real life obligations), but don't worry - doing talk shows is not easy and I could have also phrased the question better...

    And we got all the questions answered ( I hope ). I instinctively attempted a real-time edit of @Elindils last question ( above ) in an attempt to make it shorter, and in doing so omitted some background info that I figured Leslie would already...

    I like the sound of this: iTunes for Windows isn’t going anywhere "Apple is breaking up iTunes in macOS Catalina, but the company has much less ambitious plans for the Windows version of this desktop software. Like, no plans at all." 👍:D

    Rather than belief, I prefer to think of the subject in terms of what seems to me to be the most reasonable way to look at the various issues given the information and ideas we've been exposed to thus far. For the question of "phenomenal...

    Perhaps you don't see the implications and effects of the hypotheses and theories you've pressed here for several years, including those of Dennett, Hoffman, Josha Bach, and recently Metzinger. I already said in my last post that I'll step...

    I'm not trying to attack you either, only to encourage you to find out exactly what the phenomenological and neurobiological analyses of consciousness reveal before you dismiss them from the interdisciplinary project of Consciousness Studies...
  • Soupie
    Who in this thread is making these claims? No one. @Constance please stop bogging us down with endless explaining and re-explaining and answering of questions that have already been answered ad nauseam.

    Phenomenal consciousness is the qualitative aspect of consciousness: the way emotions, perceptions, sensations, and thoughts feel. All aspects of “being conscious” include phenomenal consciousness. I think of ‘mind’ as the content and...

    As I see it, consciousness, which begins to operate in prereflective states and develops in reflective capacities, grounds the development of 'mind' construed as cognition --- thinking, conceptualizing, and reasoning about both the nature of the...

    If there is a first-person, tacitly self-referential, perspective -- ongoing perspective, stream of consciousness -- experienced by consciousness what do you think its function would be? That is, why would it develop in the evolution of life...
