Many want to approach the problem of (phenomenal) consciousness in the way they approach all problems. (I’m not sure we all understand the notion of phenomenal consciousness.) To presuppose that it came from (non-phenomenal) matter.
This is akin to supposing that the model created the model maker. Or that the model maker emerged from the model. Or that the figure created the ground.
Many confuse the model for the model maker. The figure for the ground.
The model maker wants to explain the model maker using its models.
Perceptions, emotions, feelings, and thoughts manifested in consciousness constitute models of world, self, and consciousness but cannot swallow consciousness.
