What are the spatial parts of human conscious experience? If we conceive the human mind on Cartesian premises as a non-spatial res cogitans that somehow interacts with the spatial, material world, we will obviously reject the question. However, if we set this Cartesian conception aside, we can explore two types of candidates for spatial parts of human experience: the parts of the human brain or, alternatively, the external objects that are experienced. Empirical evidence shows beyond reasonable doubt that human conscious experience is strongly correlated with physical events happening within the human brain; so much that it is often thought that human experience must be identical with some aspect of the human brain – its matter, its activity or its function, as described by various special sciences. A supporting fact for this assumption is that our experience is usually complexly structured, and so is the human brain. From this perspective it would appear natural to say that human conscious experience has spatial parts, namely, the spatial parts of whatever aspect of the human brain the experience is identical with. For example, if experience is said to be a complex system-wide electrochemical activity, then the spatial parts of human conscious experience are the parts of that activity: the individual firing of the individual nervecells, each composed of many individual gate-transmission events along the cell's membrane, etc. …
