“I put my body in this position when I see the ball thusly and then I will catch it” is more likely than dong calculus with the subconscious.

True. That’s why robotics tends to be difficult to accomplish well, with the exception of the robots with physical design elements that simply “work” even if it’s unplugged.

Walking for example. You can make something walk if the center of gravities are taken into account properly and it doesn’t require sophisticated computing resources – even none at all if it’s done right.

But many models of consciousness/unconscious that are a purely computational model have every little thing calculated.

It’s one of the things that draws me towards embodied cognition as a model.

I’ll find a short baseball analogy story that contrasts the “brain calculates trajectory” (which is rather ridiculous on even a quick glance) vs the embodied cognition model (the player positions himself in optimum position so that the visual cues line up with expectations and the body moves itself in expected position to catch a ball.

In short, put yourself in the position where the template of “I put my body in this position when I see the ball thusly and then I will catch it” is more likely than dong calculus with the subconscious.
