brief history of our how we perceive the mind:
"the ghost in the machine" (Ryle)

- the mind is separate from the brain / body - unexplained or unexplainable
- the mind /brain creates a internal model of the external world (cogniton is centralised)
- cogniton is distributed, decentralised across brain, perception and the environment
