Camp Statement
Go live Time :

We use the term 'qualia' to refer to our subjective experiences. These subjective experiences are emergent phenomena that begin and end within our brains (a form of Mind Brain Identity Theory). We reject the notion of the existence of epiphenomenal qualia, and we deny the existence of any 'phenomenal' properties such as are claimed by the property dualists ( . We reject theories that suggest 'qualia' possess or depend upon any magical or supernatural concepts. We affirm that a simulated human brain would experience 'qualia' to the same extent as the natural human brain does.
Thus, this camp involves a strict type of mind brain identity theory, but one that denies dual properties unlike this related PD-MBI camp
