Why does a subjective experience of self come along with what our brains do?
Because we human brains are all big and responsive and stuff, does that mean that other things don’t have the experience of forces? Because we can talk to each other about our experiences, does that mean that the non-communicative, non-responsive things (like rocks) don’t have them?
The cool thing about our brains is that they’re linked—if we feel a force on our hands, it causes an effect on in our brain. That doesn’t mean that the hand doesn’t experience the force on its own, though.
