I will write more on Strawson’s idea, but for now I would like to point out
that both Nagel and Strawson have good ideas which are discussed in that paper
http://www.lrb.co.uk/v31/n21/thomas-nagel/the-i-in-me, but each is focusing on
a different feature. More on this soon.

I have to confess I completely got lost as to what the whole
Strawson-Nagel debate was about, and still very vague about your ideas.
But I don't want to discourage you. Keep at it - maybe eventually some
formulation will make sense to me. I found a lot of things fell into
place about Bruno's ideas in his book "Le secret de l'amibe", which I
had found puzzling earlier. Somehow, the context made more sense, but
then it was the third time he'd written a book on the subject.
Also keep at criticising my ideas - any well-focussed criticism of
those will get my attention :).
