As this project is substantially in abeyance, this report is mostly generated automatically, with minor textual additions at the end of each academic year.


Rationale for this Project
Summary of Progress during July - September 2022
  1. I spent 10.75 hours in 22Q3 on this Project, or related work (19 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2021). That's 82.5% of the planned effort (72.9% YTD). Overall, 1.7% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 0.7% YTD) - as against 1.7% planned (0.8% YTD).
  2. Further details follow (for the latest Quarter: 22Q2):-
    Consciousness (Total Hours = 10.75)
  3. I scheduled 1 hour / week for this project in 21Q4 and a further 1 hour / week in 22Q2.
  4. This allowed me to fight a rear-guard action in the final quarter, and complete my write up of "Papineau (David) - Introducing Consciousness", which I found a very useful activity.

Summary of Progress during October 2021 – Date (YTD Activity6)
  1. Consciousness (Total Hours = 19)
  2. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List7, and YTD in the current & future “automatic” editions of this report.
