Interviewer: “What IS consciousness?”

H. Dreyfus: “Nobody has ANY idea, and they should just keep quiet (about AI) until they do.

It is THE hardest question – how does matter, how could it ever produce consciousness, and using computers and AI is not helping us understand it one bit.””

5 min –

(when you’re in the moment?): yes exactly..

when you’re *absorbed in the moment consciousness is gone..

*rev of everyday life

self-consciousness is really gone.. and most of the time.. we are absorbed in the moment.. and therefore we’re

*looking in the wrong place

when we’re looking at these inner feelings..

*drucker right thing law.. holmgren indigenous law

which are these sort of break down moments when you’re crying inside because you don’t want other people to see it

so.. that’s my only contribution.. and it’s not much.. because i think that’s going to have lots of its own problems.. but at least if you do it that way.. you can look at a more basic level of consciousness than having something that feels inner and that .. is part of your ego.. your subjectivity and all that

6 min – (it certainly enriches our understanding of what consciousness is.. it may not be a complete understanding.. but it enriches it..): that’s right.. exactly.. and if you do that.. if you enrich it with the phenomena.. you can bring together a certain amount of neuroscience which is interested in how you are directly involved in the world.. so that

*meaning show up for you directly in the world

*interconnectedness..  one ness

and it isn’t inner .. and if you do that.. you may be able to have a better theory of how the brain does it.. and maybe the puzzles will go away
