Evidence for the bipartite brain: the frog brain plus neoortex
Seeing more than your eye does
The bipartite brain
There is an important distinction between actions of the nervous system and actions of the nervous system that produce "internal experience"
"Internal experience" depends on but need not include any experience of actions of the "frog brain"
"Internal experience" is a "story"
Need not correspond to what is "out there"
May be one of many possible resolutions of ambiguous input
Reflects distinctive "personal" organization of nervous system as well as inputs/other stories
Story telling in turn affects behavior, one's own and other people's, and the world outside
personal autonomy ("free will")
