Otter-dogs 110: Extended cognition
I read an article on extended cognition and have been delighting in the idea that we could get our consciousness on things or that objects could be thinking but we may not recognise it as thinking. It’s not a new idea and as long as I don’t dwell on the objects in my life as enslaved sentient creatures but instead just objects with their own possible inner world, that’s kind of cool.
Also, I was so tired last night when I made this that I called it ‘extended consciousness’. I’m going to leave the mistake as a quirk of my comics having a life of their own as lame and sentimental and crazy as that is.
