Oh; No, it's not "David Chalmers," rather, it's a collection of arguments
and observations that does it. I later discovered a guy named "David
Chalmers" was making the same arguments I was, but doing it in
a much more rigorous way.
I was simply attaching "real philosopher cred." David Chalmers has it.
I mean, personally, I'm the sort that prefers to go with specific arguments
and observations, rather than appeal to authority. But, I figured, as long
as you wanted to check badges and so on, I'd be happy to comply! :)
