Consciousness and space

In Thomas Metzinger (ed.), Journal of Consciousness Studies. Imprint Academic 220-230 (1995)
Consciousness lacks extension and other spatial properties. But how can this be, if it arises from matter in space? The paper argues that this conundrum can only be solved by recognizing that our current conception of space is fundamentally inadequate. However, no other conception is available to us.
