About the research

Some Issues I Am working on:
Theoretically providing the machinery that selects between of mental states and feeds them for higher-order representation, rendering them phenomenal conscious.

Developing an account of free will, on the basis of positive reinforcement and heuristics.

Introducing a distinction in Qualia akin to the "total phenomenal unity thesis" proposed by Bayne and Chalmers.

Investigating how theory of mind, abtract thinking and deliberation are tied to similation-theory, and in particular to qualia.
