QA: ' By the way, I'm sure dogs are conscious (have inner > personal world).'
MP: And I am sure I agree with you and that I have a pretty good idea what you mean when you say that. And you will understand me when I say that from a 3P view the 'inner world' of the dog is not at all experienced as inner; the dog's experience is all about the world around it, except if it has a tummy ache or some such, in which case it finds itself eating stringy green cow food.
