Does the Fundamentality of Consciousness Entail Its Ubiquity?

Property dualists commonly consider consciousness to be a further fundamental feature of reality in addition to its physical properties. Fundamental physical properties are ubiquitous: every physical object and its intrinsic properties ontologically depends on fundamental particles and their fundamental intrinsic features. However, property dualists mostly restrict the range of mental properties to a set of systems that satisfy a particular physical description. This paper challenges the approach of restriction and argues that if mental properties are ontologically fundamental then they must be widespread as well.
