While you point out his Appeal to Emotion, you completely ignore that you are using an Argument by Analogy.


What argument? Why can't something be an honest question? A question that happens to use an analogy?

No, the neuron does not know that it is part of a whole, but the neuron is not capable of knowing, or even imagining that it is. It is a fixed-function electrochemical device that processes chemical inputs.


So? How can we tell WE'RE not part of a wider consciousness? Again, you both make the IMPLICIT argument that our consciousness is the most expressed form there is and that anything we can't recognized is therefore not a consciousness.
