The idea of a single stream of consciousness
implies a “single function summit or central
point” where it all comes together.
And such a
summit does not exist.
The idea of a special center in the brain is the
most tenacious bad idea bedeviling our attempts
to think about consciousness.”
Daniel Dennet in Turtles, Termites, and Traffic Jams, by Mitchel Resnick, 1995.
