Richwil, at the moment, you are the only one listed in Chalmers' [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/23/9 Consciousness arises from any equivalent functional organization] camp.
Also, I just noticed that you recently started supporting xodorap's [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/23/21 Updating Model of Self in the world] camp. (Congratulations, xodorap for having a second person in your camp, the most well supported camp at this level.)
Chalmers' 'arises from anything' camp is a definite competitor to my [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/23/2 Nature has Phenomenal Properties] camp. I very much disagree with Chalmers on this issue.
Also, I know that Stathis also agrees with this 'arises from anything' camp, or at least at one time he did.
So, my question is, of the other 2 people in this camp, Steve and Xodorap, which side of this issue are you on? Do you agree with Chalmers' 'it arises from anything' idea, or do you fall more on the Nature has phenomenal properties camp? Or perhaps you have some completely different idea. I'm just wondering and thinking we could get what we all believe on this issue more accurately represented in fewer camps.
I think it would be better if we could unify some of the camps at this level. If you are the only one in a camp, it might be better to unify that camp with another camp, rather than splitting your vote across two competing camps (resulting in less than one total vote when you are split.)
Also, Richwill and Xodorap, we don't have camps for you in the [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/81 Mind Experts] camp. I sure would like to get camps started for each of you so I can rank you above all the other people that have crazy ideas about consciousness. Would you be willing to create camps for yourselves and add some personal bio info? Or could you send me a bit so I can create a camp for each of you? Or I may just create a camp just indicating what I know about each of you, so I can rank you as I believe you deserve to be considered 'Experts' above many others.
