In the Afterword some of the neuroscientists and artists give a short appreciation of Ian's contribution and what is was like to work with him. The scientists mention how critical Ian is towards experiments and that he is as careful as them in their design, performance and interpretation. They also relate that they have learned not only from experimental work but also from observing and talking with Ian. Several from the arts, whether in choreography, theatre or magic, were also astonished at Ian's movement abilities given his condition. Lastly a philosopher, Shaun Gallagher and a neuroscientist, Patrick Haggard, return to the human aspect of Ian's narrative. They mention how they have learned the importance of humanizing the experimental subject and that. 'if you want to understand what a particular experience is like, then first-person testimony from people who live with that particular experience is the best bet.'
