The world shows up for us, but, as Alva NoŽ contends in his latest exploration of the problem of consciousness, it doesnít show up for free. We must show up, too, and bring along what knowledge and skills weíve cultivated. As with a painting in a gallery, the world has no meaningóno presence to be experiencedóapart from our able engagement with it.
