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?

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
