Place/location/Self/Peacocke: the demonstrative [this T place] does not reflect the sense of "here" in English - e.g. you can ask "What’s going on here" without perceiving something in a certain place - that’s not analog with [self]: - E.g. it may well make sense to say: "[this T place] is not here" - e.g. Dennett is in Oklahoma, while his brain is in Houston.
