We don't yet know what all the steps in the recipe to produce the
subjective sensation of red are but we know the maximum size of the entire
cookbook. The human genome is about 750 million bytes but has massive
redundancy, run it through a loss-less compression program like ZIP and
it's down to 50 million bytes. About half the genome deals with the brain
so that's 25 million bytes or about a million lines of code. So although we
don't know exactly what it is yet we do know that a program with a million
lines of code can manufacture the qualia "red".
By comparison MAC OS X has 85 million lines of code.
