What is the I-Function

This discussion of exactly what consitutes the i-function is really complex, and something which I hope we will continue to explore in the coming weeks. For me, I was under the impression that the i-function represented our self-awareness or more literally, what we percieve to be the "Self" If the Self encompasses our personality, our desires, our physical ties to the external world, then it would be difficult to imagine the i-function as merely another cpg. If we were to continue with this stream of consciouness however, could we posit that the i-function is a composite collection of multiple cpg's that are united in a way which is different from the rest of the nervous system?
