The homunculus argument or fallacy is an implication that an entity in our minds must be interpreting the data. It is often described for the sake of visual imagining as a tiny man in our head, watching a screen displaying the reception of our eyes. This creates an infinite regression where there must be a homunculus for the homunculus. This is related to an argumentum ad ignorantiam with regard to neurological science.
