In other words, there are noindependent filters on what gets to excite a module; rather, we should think ofa module as self-filtering: if it can make use of an input, something happens(an output is delivered to another system); if it can’t make use of arepresentation, a computation internal to the module - there’s no output.

Themystery remains, but so does massive modularity.

However oneunderstands modularity, the input problem need not be cause for concern.

The performance of the DVR works well both in balance and unbalance conditions of voltages.

Let us try to imagine a modularity thesis that is non-massive:

If there isn’t an informational chain running through aseries of modules/filters from perception to the centre, then in what sensecould we say that a central module’s answers/outputs are anything?

central, a module will be potentially open to lots of different kinds ofinformation, but will also be self-filteringin the sense that one may or may not get an answer.

It wouldappear that there is nothing in particular that is required to activate ToMM,but ToMM, in the normal mind/brain, nevertheless functions appropriately,issuing ‘answers’ in terms of belief and desire to ‘questions’ posed by thedistal scene and distinct internal cogitations.

The Architecture of the Mind : Massive Modularity and …

Firstly, Fodor’s version of massive modularity rests upon an essentiallyperceptual model of a module: just as a perceptual device must sort betweensensory inputs to identify language or a face, say, so a putative central modulemust somehow sort between all the representations it possesses to send theright ‘questions’ to the right downstream modules.

This theory is sometimes referred to as massive modularity

However, our minds are organised in such a way that‘recognition’ of faces default triggers attribution of mental states (We maypresume that the attribution is blocked when other modules are not alsotriggered, say an ‘intentionality detector’.)
