Steve, only a concious entity knowledgeable of it's own existence can ask a question, so the only real question is where does that knowledge of one's own existence come from?
There is apparent knowledge, but what exactly is knowledge, what is a concept? knowledge is conceptual.
So really, that's the only hard problem, the problem of where does knowledge come from?
Notice consciousness doesn't need a knowledge to BE ...so then when the question arises ''who is being'' ? that question triggers a whole other realm of knowledge upon what is essentially this immediate not-knowing unknown BEINGNESS one with itself...
So knowledge then is just 'thoughts' externalised into things upon nothing.
Therefore, questions can only be answered by the knowledge that is already available, the knowledge that we already have.
Questions pertain to knowledge, if there was no knowledge a question wouldn't even arise, so the answer to every question must already exist within the knowledge we already have.
So where there is knowledge there is the answer to every question already available.
So Consciousness is not really a hard problem is it?
An example of already knowing the answers to all our questions..goes like this...
There is a spontaneous demand to know ''What it Consciousness''?
That is a ''thought'' arising in you. And you are aware of that ''thought''
The ''thought'' goes something like this...
Who am I?
Another thought answers:
"I don't know any more who or what I am" ?
Another thought asks:
"Is there any way for thought to clear up this apparent problem?"
Who can answer this question?
A 'sense' (feeling/idea) of "impending transformation" arises.
As it arises, so it is experienced/known.
This 'sense' is senseless, unknowing
That which experiences the 'sense of impending transformation' is never transformed.
BECAUSE CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT AN EXPERIENCE
You cannot experience what you already are.
You are consciousness experiencing itself as the many of the ONE
There is no concious entity inside your body looking to see if it can see it's own consciousness...but you Steve insist on looking for what's already looking, and when what is looking is looking for what is already looking inside of what it's looking at..that's the only big problem there is here...but then it's not even a problem there because there is no looker present in what is being looked at...you see?
In looking, one can only see the object of looking....the object becomes the seen and the seen is the looked upon...but there is no seer inside any object...the object is inside the seer that cannot be looked at.....do you understand that Steve?
