Thanks, your perspective on this is really helpful! Especially the points you made about consciousness research not being very neglected. On the other hand, AI research can also not really be described as neglected anymore. Maybe the intersection of both is the way to go - as you said, C might be crucial to AGI.
I'm not sure why your answer is so full of repetition, but I will definitely check those orgs out, thanks!
I did not know about the meta-problem of consciousness before. I will have to think about this, thank you!
