My hypothesis is that human qualia is an iconic capitulation of sub-personal and super-personal qualia - meta qualia which synergistically recovers richer qualities of experience from the Totality. Okay. But it will remain only a hypothesis until you (or someone else) shows how it explains new things or gathers some evidence for it. Sure, yeah it's only a hypothesis. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with it.
What you do with an hypothesis is test it; see whether it makes a false prediction that is observable.
What it explains is old things: consciousness, the hard problem, explanatory gap, maybe some important things about physics (how quantum mechanics actually makes sense empirically). It's a way to interpret in a realistic way what we have until now accepted unrealistic interpretations of.
