Re: What are they?
If these 'things" are outside the scientific method, then they are unknowable by any ordinary application of the mind. Why should we care about them?

What about self-awareness? I cannot imagine any scientific enquiry that could make any headway here. How do you test for it? I know I have it, but basing my evidence on the rest of EvC, I'm not so sure about anyone else ;)

But surely we don't just ignore its existence, and refuse to discuss its origin, nature and possible meaning?
