To: "''" Subject: Decision Letter for CCOG 2002-0008

Dear Dr. Lehar,

I have read your manuscript, "The Function of Conscious Experience:..." (CCOG 2002-0008, previously CCOG 2000-00061) and reviewed our previous correspondence. Unfortunately, it seems to me that the changes do not address my previous editorial comments. They still seem to apply. For that reason, I believe we cannot publish your manuscript.

I am sorry to have to bear unhappy tidings.

Best regards,

Bernard Baars
