Philosopher and cognitive scientist Thomas Metzinger argues that neuroscience's picture of the "self" as an emergent phenomenon of our biology - and the attendant fact that the "self" can be manipulated and even experimentally controlled - raises novel and serious ethical questions. If, as Metzinger contends, our conception of the self is a sort of tunnel-vision-like experience of the world, with little left in and much left out, can there be better or worse states of consciousness? And if so, what should we do to try to achieve them?
