 I've also argued the representationalist theory of perception:


A professor once rebuked that thesis arguing that the world you perceive could not be a mere model in your brain of the world outside your brain because it's too dark to see anything inside your brain. He was serious! Gee, so then I guess dreams must occur outside your brain, since (by his reasoning) it's too dark in your brain to see dreams. ~Ian
