I 241
Global/Local/Brain/Consciousness/Chalmers: Perhaps we will be able to characterize in relatively local terms the type of information that plays a significant global role in the system. Shallice makes a suggestion:
Shallice (1972): Thesis: the contents of consciousness correspond to the contents of "inputs of selectors" (selector inputs) of certain action systems. The selector inputs determine what actions of the system become "dominant" in global control.
Chalmers: if this is correct, then selector inputs make awareness easier and are a plausible correlate of conscious experiences.
