Theories of Mind and Consciousness
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 red a property 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 property of the final result of the perception process - our knowledge of such? Or is it some combination or something else different entirely?
