Open peer commentary on the article “Eigenforms, Interfaces and Holographic Encoding: Toward an Evolutionary Account of Objects and Spacetime” by Chris Fields, Donald D. Hoffman, Chetan Prakash & Robert Prentner. Upshot: In an attempt to understand its presuppositions, the commentary takes a closer look at the model proposed by the target article. By analysing the interactions between conscious agents, the model tries to derive the enaction of a spacetime framework. A critical examination of the ontological status of the involved entities indicates inconsistencies, especially at the adoption of viewpoints. It seems that despite the model’s being supposedly grounded on the primacy of consciousness, this characteristic is not immediately apparent. The commentary proposes an even more radical adoption of the first-person point of view.
