There have been some pretty significant structural changes recently proposed to this Hard Problem topic. I hope you'll all go to this topic and set the "include review" option on the side bar so you can see how things will appear once all these changes go live within the next week. All these kinds of changes are incremental improvements that are exciting to see, and it will be great to see this process continue as things get continually better.
I think it is great that we have at least one person representing the many believers in your camp. I'm sure we all know lots of people that generally believe in this point of view and you are providing a great service to them in this way. Hopefully we can get more people to join and assist you.
I would love to know more information about what you believe. You have expressed some of what you believe in the names and titles of the 3 statements in your camp structure. This is fine if it is what you want, but it might be better to come up with a single more complete and informative statement about what you believe.
In general, the only reason to have multiple statements is if there are differing points of view being held by different people. So I think things would be much more clear if all the information was included in a statement for the top level "brain is conduit" camp. Then these sub camp statements could be abandoned, or moved, since they are not currently necessary since there is no one in your camp with a different point of view. The ultimate goal is to discover all that is really "true" and "right", to convert everyone to this view, and get this theory in a single agreement statement at the top, or at least as close to the top as possible. So converting all your statements into one would be a big step towards this ultimate goal.
If you could propose a new complete version of a statement containing all of what it is you believe, we could help you consolidate these 3 statements into one. I, for one, look forward to learning more about what you believe and having it concisely represented here for quick reference.
