For the sake of discussion, I am simply going to assume these consequences of Interpretive Sensory-Access (ISA) theory as discussed at Aeon—
The ISA theory has some startling consequences.
One is that (with limited exceptions), we do not have conscious thoughts or make conscious decisions. For, if we did, we would be aware of them directly, not through interpretation. The conscious events we undergo are all sensory states of some kind, and what we take to be conscious thoughts and decisions are really sensory images – in particular, episodes of inner speech. These images might express thoughts, but they need to be interpreted.
I will explain ISA theory in a future post. That theory is entirely compatible with my Flatland model.
