This guy is half way there, regarding the problem of Infinity many qualia and lack of a rational in a "reality" where there could be 2 axis of time...he ends up admitting that such reality maybe it is impossible but he doesn't really get the nail on the coffin on exactly why. He fails to see the full picture but I give him props for getting close.

@Albuquerque,
It’s not American's anti science that will sink us, it’s the refusal to think for one's self and 'leaving it to your preferred authority' that can send us to the bottom.

That was just another demand by ‘authorities' to bow down before them.

****'em

Independently of Roger Penrose CCC, Conformal Cyclic Cosmology, being right or wrong is always a pleasure to see someone trying to make sense in Cosmology and avoiding Singularities or beginnings out of nothing and other similar nonsense that wee got use to deal with in the past century.

Roger Penrose is a true gentleman, sensible, modest, accessible, quiet, intrigued, and above all honest.

@Albuquerque,
Every time I see Penrose I am left with anxiety...it always comes to my mind that it might be the last time I see him alive! We still need him so much...
I hope Nature is gracious enough to let him be with us for a while longer!

If Dennet conceded on Free Will being silly then he and I would agree perfectly on almost everything. Sadly one of the greatest thinkers of our time is afraid of going all the way down and plays "politics" on the Free Will debate because he thinks the species couldn't handle it and went with the Soft Deterministic diplomatic cop out.

...finally on the messy topic of "illusions" I will just remark that phenomenology has an Ontology of its own, after all phenomena are REAL. Just as Illusions are REAL illusions!
In that sense "Qualia" do exist in what I call a specific domain of operations and in the case of Consciousness a given domain of Experiencing.

My small beef with Dennet over the years has always been about how such a clear cut good thinker is afraid of pushing the "agenda" for clarity harder.
Maybe he is the unfortunate sort of almost getting it but failing at the cross line or maybe he is just playing "politics" to babysit the conceptual transitions that we are about to face in the unfolding of XXI century.
