_Model_ of the conscious mind, which bears little or no resemblance to
the underlying 'thing'. Black boxes abound.
Given that pretty much all other complex bio/ecological systems are
built as a 'memeplex-mind' might be (i.e. lots of little things
interacting to produce ever-higher-order structures -- pretty much the
only things evolution can build), is it so unreasonable?
Much harder to evolve than the kind of designed layered analytical
engine that seems to be favoured by psychoscience imho.
