Is it safe to say that consciousness is the juxtaposition of physical states of mind as suspended in time? Anyone interested in neurology?
We exist. We're fairly sure of that. We're not as sure that the rest of the world exists
"The conscious self is taken to exist as an abstraction visible at the level of the intentional stance, akin to a body of mass having a 'center of gravity'. Analogously, Dennett refers to the self as the 'center of narrative gravity', a story we tell ourselves about our experiences.".
"Time is an active construction of the brain. We can set up simple experiments to make you believe that a flashed image lasted longer or shorter than it actually did, or that a burst of light happened before you pressed a button (even though you actually caused it with the button), or that a sound is beeping at a faster or slower rate than it actually is, and so on. Time is a rubbery thing."http://boingboing.net/2011/10/19/an-interview-with-david-eagleman-neuroscientist.html
