"At the University of Washington, researchers are pioneering a field of neuroscience called "neuroengineering," which will one day involve doing things like regulating people's moods with brain implants. In this fascinating video, they explain how their work spilled over into philosophy."
A physical reductionism on ethics and symbolism does not discover anything new, it just shows that actions in the philosopohical, psychological, ideological and religious spheres manifests in the physical reductionistic sphere as well. What is true in one dimension will be manifested in the other dimensions as well. This means that what is true in one epistemology would manifest in other epistemologies as well in some way. For example: If Joe says ice-cream makes him feel good it would mean that a physical reaction inside Joe produces good feelings from eating ice-cream.
This is also why the NJTI is about what makes a person feel good, because if it's true in their self-reporting experience, then it will be true in other epistemologies as well. But it's important not to frame or direct self-reporting because then it's not honest anymore.
But still, a dishonest self-reporting would manifest in other epistemologies as well, just in a different way compared to a honest self-reporting.
So the most meaningful self-reporting for our project is the honest self-reporting and this can only be produced organically or uncontrolled or spontaneous.
