Rajesh on New ideas of conceptual and emotional cognition as embodied: there are fixed metaphorical mappings from physical senses to concepts. So, seeing is used to mean knowledge, hearing means obedience, touched means emotion. The old computational model made sense from a God’s eye view, but the “moth’s eye view” only needs to know what to do next. So rather than a computational clockwork universe model, we have an embodied way of understanding individual experience.
