Cassandra Kay Silva I see you have a number of books regarding the subject of "consciousness". I would be interested in reading something about this subject from a more philosophical and/or scientific view. I noticed your rating for both the user illusion and the breakdown of the bicameral mind. Which of these two or is there another you would suggest on this topic for someone just getting into this subject? And yes I did see that you are the editor of one of these but I would still like to know if that is a good place to start, or if another book would be a better background to begin with.
