The role attention plays in building our subjective experiences

Giorgio Marchetti
University of Urbino (Italy)



Abstract: The phenomenon of qualia is explained by considering the organ of attention as the source of 
the organism's nervous energy (a kind of energy that directs all the other kinds of energy of the 
organism), and attention as the nervous energy that gives the organism the possibility of performing 
actions capable of directly affecting the state of its nervous energy. The attentional activity 
performed by the organism involves a variation in the state of the nervous energy: it is precisely 
this variation that constitutes the phenomenal aspect of consciousness.
