The "Hard Problem" ... Has an "Easy" Solution
(Excerpted beginning http://www.the-brights.net/forums/forum/index.php?/topic/10735-the-philosophers-brain/&do=findComment&comment=275232 A disputant of mine, citing Revonsuo repeated:
"How, then does a nonconscious phenomenon produce or become a conscious phenomenon?"
This is a one sentence nutshell definition of Chalmer's ludicrously obtuse declaration of a "hard problem".
Unfortunately for all the magic mojo mysterian philosophers, it really does have a simple answer.
By being (reconstructively) remembered.
If you can remember something you've perceived . (You as a body, not the perceived as self YOU ... the recollective affordance is the "you perceiving"). And you recollecting iteratively with at least some fidelity and being able to compare and associate those with other recollections of other things IS your "phenomenal" consciousness.
