....perhaps... but "sensory input" still implies a dualistic world-view in which "external events" impinge on "an observer". That is the world view with which most
of contemporary science operates.
However, biologists such as Maturana, and physicists such as Bohr and Bohm have questioned the nature of "external events". Maturana sees "cognition" as "informationally closed", and the concept of "non-locality" in physics implies that that "consciousness" might be better understood as a "field" phenomenon rather than an individual awareness.
Consider this. A recent nature documentary (Attenborough,I think) pointed out that the behaviour of an ant colony was highly suggestive of how individual neurons "co-operate" in the brains of higher organisms. Watching an ant colony respond to a threat was exactly lke watching a single organism engaged in co-ordinated multi-tasking. The seething mass of ants suddenly could be pictured as a unified" brain" oozing around its environment. And so the philosopher extrapolates by asking "What of the individuality
of man ?".
