  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!  :)
