Thanks for the link Colin. I will read it after the exams period. In some trivial sense I think I, and the Lobian machine, agrees with your conclusion, but less trivially, we may disagree. We don't have to change the boundaries of science, just be more open to facts, including the consequences of different theories. Could say more later.

I think that computer science offers a theory of qualia on a plate (the intensional variants of the solovay logic G*, the 'right hypostases"). It is a sort of theory which explains what escapes all theories. It makes you "first person" right, with the assumption of mechanism. But it is not knew, many did intuit such type of 'truth', and the greek intuited it together with the fact that we can reason about that. Th (old) error consists in opposing science and mysticism. The universal machine is naturally already mystical.


I have explained this, but I know it is not so easy to grasp.

Recently there was a student essay contest run by the ASSC (Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness)
The five winners are published in the ASSC journal PSYCHE.
One of them was mine. They have finally got around to publishing them.

I am trying hard to get my ideas about science into the awareness of as many folks as I can.

I thought some of you may be interested.The essays are mercifully short (1500 words!)

Enjoy.
