Steven Pinker, at the end of "How the mind works" present a number of evolutionary and cognitive explanations of the mind in terms of brain processes . But at the end then comes the hard question: Why we are conscious and not unconscious robots?. Pinker end up saying that in the same way that a monkey can not understand what happens in a soap opera in a TV, we are not intelligent enough to understand what is conscience, which is something explainable at other level of experience and intelligence above us.
And I say, that obviously, this super level of intelligence must be inhabited by one Mind at least.... 2013/11/30 Roger Clough <rclo...@verizon.net> > Online opinions of Dennett and Chalmers-- the clueless two > > Dennett never tells us what conscilousness is, because > conciouness rwequires a perceiver, and he hasn't a clue as to what that is, > because that concept is foreign to his materialism. > > He's clueless.
