1) exposing the bigger picture, in which all problems are experiences within consciousness, including the hard problem. 2) With the understanding that sense is primordial, consciousness is inescapable and ubiquitous in all real universes and so needs no justification in any other terms (as all terms are only sub-ontological and a-posteriori to sense.) The answer to "Why do we experience anything at all?" is "Because all there ever can be is experience."
