Some like it HOT: Consciousness and higher-order thoughts

Philosophical Studies 2 (2):103-29 (1997)
Abstract
Consciousness is the subject of many metaphors, and one of the most hardy perennials compares consciousness to a spotlight, illuminating certain mental goings-on, while leaving others to do their work in the dark. One way of elaborating the spotlight metaphor is this: mental events are loaded on to one end of a conveyer belt by the senses, and move with the belt
