Judy what this reminds me of is Maharishi's explanation that the three deepest 
levels of individuality are what he calls Iness, Amness, Isness, the latter 
being the deepest.  I like the word Isness because IMO it best avoids the 
connotation of an object, which so many phrases used in this context are unable 
to avoid.

What the "hard problem" is *about* is something very
simple, very immediate, very transparent--that there is
*something it is like* to be you, to be me, to be Dennett.
You may have to sit with that phrase for awhile before it
makes sense; but once it does, a whole lotta crap just
falls away.
