Do you think consciousness itself causally affects human behaviour, or is human behaviour perfectly explicable in terms of brain activity?


    
If I talk about my experience of seeing the colour red, am I doing so because I had a conscious experience, or am I doing so because because my brain received an input (photons of ~700nm wavelength), made a calculation and generated a response?
