Philosophy is perfect for conducting thought experiments [ the Trolley Problem or Prisoners Dilemma for example ] but when
it comes to the mechanics of how the brain works this is the preserve of neuroscience. But it might be that neither discipline
will ever be able to crack the hard problem and fully explain how subjective conscious experience actually comes to be. And
what exacerbates this more so is the fact that subjective experiences are absolutely unique to every individual. And also the
particularly intractable problem of using the brain to understand the brain. Maybe the machines of the future will help there
