Consciousness seems to be mysterious to most people. How does subjective experience arise? What is the relation between the perception of redness, say, or the thought that “Paris is the capital of France,” and the purely physical mechanisms that philosopher Daniel Dennett believes – and I believe – constitute human processes of thought? In this article I use David Bentley Hart’s article criticizing Dennett as a frame through which to offer my own thoughts on consciousness. Note that at 14,500 words this is one of my longer articles. Also note that I’m still making edits and updates, not so much to polish it, but to fill gaps and round it out where needed.
