Conscious Experience is one such Category of Phenomena that is not Explained yet.
Steve, let us try to explain it ourselves ok? The thing is, all I am ever doing here on this forum is attempting to explain it myself from my own direct subjective experience, it's all I ever do, I don't believe the answer can come from a source outside myself, because then it wouldn't be my experience would it? on the flip side, just who is going to believe my descriptive version born out of my own subjective experience from how I directly experience it? that wouldn't be the experience of another person would it?
Surely that would be a problem, expecting everyone to agree with my version. That would be like a never ending problem because how would every other thinking sentient living being in existence ever come to agree with one persons subject direct experience? obviously there are going to be mulitple versions of explanations.
If this phenomena is ever meant to be explained, then the explanation is going to happen somehow, one way or another eventually. So can it be explained right now within our own personal conscious thinking mind? or do we have to wait for someone else to explain it to us?
And then surely if someone else can explain it to us, then that would be the proof that an explanation is possible. And so if one conscious mind can explain it then so must all minds be able to explain it as well.
In my opinion, a Conscious Experience implies there is a 'someone' that knows it is conscious, and that this 'someone' knows it is having a Conscious Experience...right?
But then wouldn't that require the Consciousness that knows it is Conscious to split in two into the knower and the known causing a gap between the two? ..and does that gap actually exist?
