Since Descartes’ times, many solutions have been proposed to the body-mind problem. The first one who tried to find a solution was Malebranche, who hypothesized his occasionalism theory,37 claiming a sort of ontological parallelism between the mental world and the physical one, in order to explain the concordance between those two “things”. This “exit strategy” from the bridge problem has been further used but in an epistemological sense rather than in the ontological one. A common parable about the understanding of the issue shows that, once the correlation between mind and brain starts to be considered like two different ways to investigate the same object, the ontological monism underlying this conception will prevail, and from the dualistic methodological starting point we fall back to the monism field that is the most common and shared one.

The risk of dealing with an encoded identity is to take that code as really representative of the original identity. 42 This is, from another perspective, what McLuhan expressed in his sensorium theory. There is a strong link between an object and its representation and it is possible to further investigate such connection. The representation could be seen as a way to access the object, so the identity of a given object is primarily depending on the representation we are going to adopt to analyse it.

The sensors that will be used tell us what we are going to measure in the same way as we can say what we are going to perceive when we focus our attention on a particular sense rather than on another one. We can recognize someone, for example, by hearing her/his voice, by looking at her/his appearance and so on, and we need to use our senses differently to perform each kind of identification. The same will work for biometric sensors. The sensorium theory tells us how, even when we focus on an individual sense to recognize something, all the other senses are involved in that task: all the perceptions we receive from them are hierarchically organized according to the dominant sense we are focusing on.
