Abstract: We aim to extend the discussion on three main different levels raised in the commentaries: (1) an inclusion of the senses of agency and ownership to extend our theoretical model; (2) a potential expansion to our experimental setup; (3) and the distinction between illusions and aliefs. Marte Roel Lesur et al.
