The term is archaic and is not one I am sufficiently used to using. But if "qualia" is simply just any unique 'feeling' or 'experience' as an elemental sensation, then yes. I think that we're mainly trying to make sense of the phenomena, not to assert or deny them as existing as real or not. I think the differences people have on this topic is whether something like "red" or "pain" exists in each of our independent minds as being a product of something in common or not. I explain that the structure of "color" as a generic formula for what will be any color is in common but that the particular experience may be differently assigned. It is like this:raw_thought wrote:So you believe in qualia?
Color Structure can be a universal formula such that it requires some form that distinguishes at least three color data information to create any color sensation in common. But one may 'assign' particular colors differently like:
For one person it might be:
Color Structure (1) is assigned to green,
Color Structure (2) is assigned to red,
Color Structure (3) is assigned to blue.
For another different person it might be:
Color Structure (1) is assigned to red
Color Structure (2) is assigned to green
Color Structure (3) is assigned to blue
Only the particular assigned values for each numbered experience will differ. But it might be the case that all Color Structure (1)'s are always objectively identical things.
