I think this is an interesting article.
Any development beyond or current frameworks to see things anew is always welcome.
But i would like to play the role of the devil´s advocate.

The extended mind hypothesis derived from embodied or embeded cognition theories which in a nutshell, say, intelligence depends on the body, and its use as an heuristic to rethink the way neurotechnology can be used in some disorders of conciousness seems a little contradictory when aplied to lock-in-syndrome: the body is still, so, the qualia cannot be generated by the sensoriomotor feedback of the embodied mind in relation to the enviroment.

Is not this disorder, lock-in-syndrome, a case that recognize the prominent role of the brain "within the skull" and not "out of the skull" to think about what is consciousness?
