In Consciousness Explained Dennett has a beautiful passage where he's sitting on a patio under rustling trees, immersed in the balmy air and the birdsong -- and he brings it all home with his account of his own consciousness, with nothing of what he calls "skyhooks" and I call "magic" . Let me be clear about that; I don't mean ritual magick or literal magic, but rather appeals to something that is beyond empiricism and analysis.
