Thanks! I'll relish my 15 minutes of fame.

I've been lurking on the periphery of the academic community around consciousness for a bit, so let me throw in my first conversation starter on a problem I am not sure has been considered in the community, something I call the problem of "indexical extent" (a term derived from the "indexical problem" notion in your book). Here goes Where is I?. Be gentle please. I am not a professional philosopher, and work more with a continental style introspective approach (which I'll admit, in my case, is sometimes code for 'sloppy'). Conversations welcome.

Apologies if this is a bit of a non sequitur with respect to this 'bits and pieces' post, but this is the only blog on the subject that I read regularly, and I didn't want the pointer to be buried in an older (though possibly more relevant) post.
