      Thanks for this h. I finally got a chance to view the "Physical theory won't do the job" portion of the interview. I've followed Chalmers on and off for about 10 years as he's probably the most comprehensive compiler and critique of all the various philosophies of mind. I like what he says about needing an explanation which is not only physical but one which also incorporates experience. For our present discussion, the experience of thought is different from the neural process of thought.
