Has Your Phone Replaced Your Brain? (Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2019)

What if your mind is not only ‘in’ your brain? How exactly would your mind extend across brain, body and beyond?

Philosopher Dave Chalmers claims that if his iPhone were implanted in his head, it would just speed up processing; it is already part of his mind.
