Extended simples

There are at least two reasons to think we are simple:

  1. It is difficult to explain how a non-simple thing can have a unity of consciousness.

  2. There is David Barnett’s “pairs” argument.

But we are clearly extended.

So, we are extended simples.

So, there are extended simples.

(That said, while I am happy with the idea that we are extended simples, I am suspicious of both 1 and 2.)
