You make good points and you make them well. Consciousness and reality are sticky wickets indeed. I am only an amateur philosopher, and self taught at that. These are uncertain times. Times tailor made for uncertainty. I do believe that “facts” exist, but only within given contexts and from certain perspectives. As observers, we alter observations by observing. The problem of consciousness, who and what are we, is a core issue. Neuroscience is in its infancy and new possibilities constantly arise. The quest to understand these problems goes on. Thanks for the interesting responses.
