L'introduction de ces scientifiques martiens imaginaires me permet d'exposer et de rendre plus palpable un thème subliminal qui est familier au sein Une approche de la conscience... 53 des débats actuels à propos d'une théorie scientifique de la conscience. Un des dogmes de notre théorie populaire que les Martiens découvriront tôt ou tard, c'est qu'une théorie scientifique de la conscience est largement considérée par les Terriens comme quelque chose d'impossible. Un point des doctrines transmises qu'ils enregistreraient- comme nous l'enregistrons nous-mêmes dans le cours de notre formation - est que la conscience est complètement privée, inaccessible aux autres, autrement dit, au moins partiellement incommunicable et réfractaire à la science, c'est-à-dire aux méthodes mêmes que ces Martiens emploieraient pour explorer notre planète.

Serait-il possible que ce que je vois comme bleu, vous le voyiez comme jaune, et que pourtant Une approche de la conscience... 59 vous appeliez bleu cette couleur subjective ? Quel effet cela fait d'être un bébé - est-ce un « bourgeonnement confus et bruyant» -ou quelque chose de très différent? Les expériences que les hommes et les femmes ont du monde se déroulent-elles vraiment selon des modes qui sont foncièrement incomparables ? Il y a toutes sortes de réponses concurrentes pour ces questions embarrassantes, et toutes sont à l'occasion dignes de notre attention, mais plutôt que d'essayer de trancher entre elles dès le départ, nous devrions d'abord respirer à fond, puis reconnaître que toutes les réponses, qu'elles soient bonnes ou mauvaises, ne sont en elles-mêmes que des fragments de théories populaires de la conscience, et non des données qu'il serait possible de partager avec des Martiens.

Délivrer entièrement de toutes sortes de préjugés»). En vrai scientifique, Descartes appréciait la valeur de l'intersubjectivité, et les manières qu'a la science d'annuler les idiosyncrasies individuelles des chercheurs, de sorte que tous puissent participer de conserve à une recherche partagée, à savoir l'approche «en troisième personne» qui constitue la méthode scientifique. Nos Martiens ne sont certainement pas disqualifiés pour participer aux méditations de Descartes, et je propose que nous nous placions sous la conduite de Descartes et de son effort en direction d'une science maximalement intersubjective de la conscience.
