That's exactly the backbone equivalence of multisense realism. As the most
common denominators, the characteristics of quanta are the most impersonal
and common forms of qualia. Because of the privacy of qualia, it really
drains almost everything out of it to make it shared to the point of near
universality. Qualia drained of most quality is really involuted qualia,
but because it has no existence of its own, it doesn't commute the other
way around. Qualia isn't involuted quanta, as quanta isn't anything without
first being qualia.
Both logical algebras and topologies are quanta. They are reductions of
qualia, not particles or qualia-free informaiton which generate qualia. An
mp3 file is a compression, not of music, but of the articulations of
current which matches the acoustic dynamic conditions associated with sound
perception. We can intellectually match the data of the mp3 file with any
external topology (eardrum, needle on vinyl, speaker, laser pits on a CD,
etc), and the logical algebra which (figuratively) animates that topology (
f(mp3)), but they only relate to each other, and not any kind of subjective

That's cool. I can see that in my terms too, with gravity being like
Kryptonite to motive participation. Systems lose their ability to
differentiate themselves from a large mass.
