Deserving an Explanation is Irrelevant. I want an Explanation.
Perhaps you should start by telling us what you want exactly?

Tell us what an "explanation" is.
First tell us the meaning of Is.

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

What I mean is that if the Physical World was non-Physical, or if it was a Simulation, then we should want an Explanation of why we are being Frauded by the Universe into thinking it is real. Non physical or simulation... I think these are two very different scenarios. A simulation requires a contr...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

I get where you are coming from. Who knows, maybe there really is only Consciousness. Maybe it is all just a Simulation. Who knows... as I see it, the only thing one can "rely on" is ones own direct experience. All explanations/interpretations of direct experience should be questioned, investigated...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

The Physical Universe is outside the Mind but our Descriptions of the Physical Universe are inside the Mind. The Experience of Redness is only inside the Mind. There is no Redness outside of the Mind. The 670nm Light is outside the Mind but it is not the Redness. So they say... You don't need 670nm...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

I fully expect that there will be final Explanations for everything, including Consciousness. You are very optimistic, nice :-) Your implication that previous interpretations are all worthless when new interpretations are discovered is just wrong. Knowledge builds on itself. Yes, it does, but somet...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

The broad scope of general Consciousness is too wide. I want to start with something more simple like what is the Conscious Experience of Redness? It's Consciousness. It is not possible to describe Redness. It can only be Experienced because it is only in the Mind. Explain the experience of Redness...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

There is a tremendous amount of Neural Activity going on when we are Dreaming. Speculations are good when it comes to Consciousness, but what we need are Explanations. One explanation is soon superseded by another and another... do you really think there can be a final, true explanation? I don’t......

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

1) Neurons associated with Redness fire. 2) A Conscious Experience of Redness happens. How can 1 produce 2? Maybe 1 is not required to produce 2... "A Conscious Experience of Redness" can also happen in a dream - there are no Neurons firing but Redness still happens. How? Maybe the dream (which is ...

Re: Everyone is qualia blind

Everyone thinks there is a “hard” mind body problem. But isn’t it just sloppy epistemology of color, that is our problem? I would love to hear if everyone does or does not agrees with the “correct” answers to this Socratic method test to help people understand intrinsic qualities, asking: “ Are you...

Levels of Understanding For the Human Visual Experience

1) Naive Realism Level: When we were young and Naive we looked out at the World and assumed that the Visual Experience that we were Seeing was what the External World actually looked like. We did not think Deeper about what this Visual Experience actually could be. It was so simple then, we just loo...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

It occurred to me that the people who claim they have no Qualia or Conscious Experiences like Redness, Standard A Toneness, or Salty Tasteness are actually not even Sentient Beings. Machines can Detect Red Electromagnetic Waves , or Detect a 440Hz Tone, or Detect the presence of Salt, but a Machine ...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

I am sticking with my answer. I like my answer. You should study my answer for a couple of months and then get back to me. You are continuing your Infantile and Unnecessary Obfuscation and Misdirection from the topic of this post. Go start another topic about the meaning of Explanation. Well, I lik...
