Electromagnetic waves a length of 700 nanometers can produce the quale "red" in the minds of most (but not all) human beings if it enters their eye, so the red quale simulates (represents) the location and intensity of 700 nanometer electromagnetic radiation. But red can stand for other things that have nothing to do with light; go into a pitch dark room and close your eyes and apply gentle pressure to your closed eyelid, you often see splotches of red. So in this case the red quale simulates (represents) the location and intensity of pressure. > Who we are is like that. Us-ness. > I see, ... Us-ness. Well I'm glad you cleared that up.
