You should have added a better description for this, Ryan; and warned people that it is an hour long.

From Wikipedia:

"Thomas Metzinger (born 12 March 1958) is a German philosopher.  As of 2011 he holds the position of director of the theoretical philosophy group at the department of philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz.  He has been active since the early 1990s in the promotion of consciousness studies as an academic endeavor. As a co-founder, he has been particularly active in the organization of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC), and sat on the board of directors of that organization from 1995 to 2008. He served as president of the ASSC in 2009/10. Metzinger is director of the MIND group and has been president of the German cognitive science society from 2005 to 2007.

"In 2003 Metzinger published the monograph Being No One.  In this book he argues that no such things as selves exist in the world: nobody ever had or was a self.  All that exists are phenomenal selves, as they appear in conscious experience.  He argues that the phenomenal self, however, is not a thing but an ongoing process; it is the content of a "transparent self-model."

lol sorry about that. I was quite lazy in posting this (forgot what reason), but thanks for posting the wiki link. I didn't even look him up. Just watched the video.
