    It would be nice if Jonathan reviewed the books by Donald Hoffman and Philip Goff in some future issue:

    The Case Against Reality: How Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes (Donald Hoffman)

    Galileo’s Error: Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness (Philip Goff)

      Both authors, unlike me, are officially licensed to practice consciousness studies : )
