That one seemed fairly intriguing. But I can't help to feel that there is a certain risk in tampering with your own consciousness in order to gain knowledge about your consciousness. A little bit like setting out to open a box with the key that is safely locked away in said box. And, perhaps even more, a little bit of modern physics as well (good going FBS, you've found a philosophical connection between your subjects) in that it appears, to me, impossible to observe without affecting. Are the humanists, in fact, heading towards an uncertanity principle all of their own? I am looking forward to more posting on this matter from you, FBS.
