Experience

 
Experience is considered a component of phenomenal consciousness (as a primary component of the concept of qualia).

This is just some spitballing, and an attempt to pull out some specifics from areas that are currently a bit vague, or ambiguous.



What is an experience:
. . . . .


1. An experience is something that causes the agent (the entity having the experience) to alter how it responds (reacts) to future experiences.


2. An experience consists of these components:
  • External stimuli to the agent (or internal stimuli?).

  • Internal reaction or response by agent to external stimuli.

  • External reaction or response by agent to external stimuli, if any.

  • Internal stimuli caused by agent's response.

  • External stimuli (or changes to it) caused by agent's response if any.

  • Learning: changes in how the agent will respond to future experiences (to future stimuli). Here, the future can be measured in fractions of a second to years.
