character, a stuff of our mind and not property of whatsoever in the act before your eyes. With that, Tye understands that no human being can do it and if you try you will end up seeing blue color which is a property of objects such as sapphires and not a property of a mental state. Furthermore, just as philosopher Joseph Levine states that consciousness definition has an explanatory gap between physical world and what we call consciousness. While David Chalmers refers to understanding consciousness as what he calls the hard problem. Additionally, some philosophers such as Thomas Nagel believe that consciousness exists and through dualism hypothesis that seeks an explanation about consciousness in entirely physical terms even if we don’t really understand it. Consequently, the same philosophers who believe in dualism also argue that although our modern world is yet to understand and explain physical phenomena of consciousness which is out there to be found, human beings are not up for the job due to limited knowledge we possess. Dualism is based on the idea that consciousness is independent and part of nature, while it exists over and beyond the factors recognized by physics and chemistry. Moreover, Nagel provides reason about consciousness when he claims that consciousness must play important role in explaining the connection between brain and body. Nagel also thinks that the mere fact that some living organism such as bat are conscious demonstrate that there is “something that it is like” to be that organism. Meaning each conscious creature experiences reality independent and our view of consciousness vary from one organism to another.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
