What is the argument for panpsychism? Is it this? -
- Since there is consciousness in the complex parts of the world, and
- since the complex is only a sum of simple parts, it must follow that
- there must also be consciousness in the simple parts of the world.
Premises i and ii seem intuitively true. However, is iii a correct conclusion to premises i and ii? Is it in fact true?
If a creature had trillions of neurons, would it be ultra-conscious (or have ultra-consciousness)? And need that complexity only be the complexity of neurons and other aspects of the human brain?
