where experience and the world are one

The Spread Mind is a theory about consciousness. It is a simply yet radical hypothesis about what conscious experience is in a physical world. In a nutshell, the spread mind is a mind-object identity theory that states that one's consciousness of an object is the object one is conscious of. The hypothesis revisits both the notion of the object and that of the now/(t)here. The theory is described from different angles in two books:

The Spread Mind. Why Consciousness and World are one and the same.
OR Books, 2017

Consciousness and Object. A mind-object identity physicalist theory
John Benjamins, 2017

In the meantime, you may have a look a this website that contains a quick outline of the main idea.
