Levi Bryant begins to craft an OOO theory of mind. Brilliant. Uncannily we seem to have been inching toward the same position. Try this:
"on this view, mind is not to be found “in” neurons, but in sensual interactions between neurons and other objects."
Sure maybe a brain in a bucket could manifest mind. But it would be a catatonic mind compared with an ant trying not to stumble over some sand grains.
Another implication is that enaction (Varela's term for this kind of mind) is a sensual object in OOO-ese.
Forestmongrel, are you there? This should be up your alley...
