The early philosopher Immanuel Kant suggested that the mind's intrinsic features are intimately linked to the extrinsic stimuli of the environment it processes. Currently, the field faces an analogous problem with regard to the brain. Kant's ideas may provide novel insights into how the brain's intrinsic features must be so that they can be linked to the neural processing of extrinsic stimuli to enable the latter's association with consciousness and self.
