Is consciousness something more than simple brain activity? Dan Dennett doesn't think so. So how do we explain that consciousness is not something more--that there are simply brain mechanisms, and this is what we have come to call consciousness. And our idea of consciousness has come to signify some separate entity from the brain--a word to refer to its added up processes working at once to perform. But wouldn't this just be called the brain?
