"Quine" and Consciousness

A friend, who is known online as "Quine", posted this link to a blog post of his about consciousness.  It's really worth reading.


Quine has provided me with some really useful ways to think about consciousness, especially in response to those who who insist that there must be some non-physical aspect, such as that consciousness develops, both through evolution and in the life of an animal.  There is a point where growth and organisation of the brain allows for some consciousness, and that is certainly a physical change of state.
