There's a problem I've been thinking about recently. I feel like it must be ubiquitous, but I don't know what the popular solutions to it are, or if it has a fancy name. Basically:
Why do I subjectively experience life through the particular mind that belongs to my body?
i.e. why am I not experiencing the world through the mind of a worm, or George Clooney's mind, or the mind of a conscious entity in another galaxy, or a conscious A.I. (assuming they are possible)? A priori, all possibilities should be equally likely.
I understand that if I inhabited Clooney's mind, I would not be 'me' as I'm used to. I would not have the same thoughts or experiences, because they would be dictated by Clooney's brain chemistry. But regardless, I would, at this moment in physical time, be subjectively experiencing life through Clooney's mind.
So at some point, a 'symmetry' of consciousness must have been broken, or we have a paradox. I have looked a bit at some proposed solutions to the hard problem of consciousness, and as far as I can tell, none of them address this asymmetry.
