Can anyone recall how bad things were in this group on the topic of
"qualia" before canonizer came along?
Everyone bleating and tweeting the same old TERRIBLE arguments for one side
or another, over and over, add infinitem, every time someone mentioned
Then has anyone noticed how different things are once  this emerging
consensus topic on canonizer
Instead of all the bleating and tweeting, now everyone just points to their
current camp, and everyone can see the current state of all of our
continued finally great discussions.
Heck even Stathis is now on the verge of admitting the popular consensus
functionalists are wrong
right Stathis?
And functionalism has significantly decreased in consensus.

We never could have achieved that much progress without canonizer.
