Sue is the Drug

Seems I’m obsessed with Sue Blackmore – just re-read all the articles on her web site, again – particularly the mid-life-crisis post-50-years career switch from the paranormal expert to philosophy of mind novice. Such deep material, such human and witty delivery, and painfully open too.

Anyway after my fix, I’m reminded of the connection I was following – Sue’s (and Dan Dennett’s – see previous post) conclusion that conscious mind and free-will are illusions. Metaphorical ? yes; Illusory ? please no. Now, where was I – the link is David Deutsch’s “explanation” of this as an error of our common sense model of the flow of time, using the Multiverse idea.
