The thought of the 'thinker', however, is not the origin of the normal or 'classical' human consciousness.
Rather, the origin of the 'classical' consciousness, which *thought* itself into existence by 'thinking' the thought of the 'thinker', is the 'movement' of self-reflection which occurs prior to the thought of the 'thinker'.
It is this 'movement' of self-reflection which curves space itself into a 3-dimensional 'curved' space in which the 'classical' consciousness exists, but only at the very instant of self-reflection; and it is through the postulation of the thought of the 'thinker' that this 3-dimensional 'curved' space consciousness is maintained over time through the postulation of the thought of the 'thinker'.
In other words, it was the 'movement' of self-reflection which fractured reality into an "observed" and an "observer" and a "subjective" and an "objective".
Thus, the postulated existence of the "hard problem" is merely the re-assertion of the metaphysical duality, which is at the foundation of the scientific method and Western philosophy itself.
And realizing that the "hard problem" is an illusion originating in self-reflection then necessitates the development of a new paradigm of consciousness with a greater range of applicability (Kuhn) than the scientific method, and within which the study of the 'classical' consciousness is a 'special case' (Kuhn, Einstein) of the "observing consciousness", which exists as a 2-dimensional 'flat' space consciousness prior to the consciousness originating in self-reflection and the thought of the 'thinker' which established the foundations of the scientific method in the first place.
