What if the “what it is like” is just faded sense presence made fuzzy?
There is sense presence and we capture from it rules. Every sayable is a kind, a background field of variation. An instance of a kind falls inside the kind in two ways:
- When I see this particular patch of red and cognize that it is red, this means that I see that the patch “falls under” red like a particular under a universal.
- But there is another being inside for cognition that is most clear and distinct. Kinds contain variety that corresponds a priori to cardinality. I see that the patch rests inside a continuum—of hue, of brightness, of saturation.
