I don't want to put a partial group of qualia on the banner.
Besides: I fell into my own concept of 'networks of Networks (Karl Jaspers Forum

So whatever I would name 'qualia' is by Occam's razor.
Not as a term of the infinite complexity I have in mind.
No offense intended, but I strongly doubt that you can be conscious of infinite
complexity. ISTM that what one is conscious of is almost coextensive with what you can
put into symbols: language, music, gestures, pictures. Experiments with language and
music suggest that you can only process about 50bits/sec.
