organisms that are in tune with reality go extinct-- what reality?
separation from fitness payoff and perception of reality.
we create our reality by building an interface of icons, but icons are portals to other consciousnesses, so no solipsism.
neural correlates of consciousness doesn't explain.
the icons themselves are not conscious...but can be portals that are open or closed.
"object permanence" - built to think objects exist even when we don't perceive them
not "panpsychism" -- matter IS consciousness
but using consciousness as a lens, experience is the currency of everything, from the fundamental building block, the smallest conscious agent as a mathematically precise term, you get a dynamical system, like a vast social network.
