This section is a table of contents for this topic. It is in outline or tree form, with supporting sub camps indented from the parent camp. If you are in a sub camp, you are also counted in all parent camps including the agreement camp at the top. The numbers are canonized scores derived from the people in the camps based on your currently selected canonizer on the side bar. The camps are sorted according to these canonized scores. Each entry is a link to the camp page which can contain a statement of belief. The green line indicates the camp page you are currently on and the statement below is for that camp.
The goal of this topic is to concisely state the best theories of consciousness, and to quantitatively measure how much consensus there is for each.
The focus of this topic is on the Explanatory Gap or the phenomenal nature of what consciousness is like. Is Phenomenal redness a quality of the strawberry we are looking at? Or in other words is it a property of the initial cause of the perception process, or is it a quality of the final result of the perception process - our knowledge of such? Or is it some combination or something else different entirely?
All of the participators of this survey process unanimously agree that the theoretical information being collaboratively developed through this concise, quantitative, consensus building communication process already surpasses anything coming out of the Ivory Tower and the now more than 20,000 peer reviewed publications in this theoretical field.
This topic is part of the Consciousness Survey Project.
