This has to do with the so called "binding problem
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binding_problem>".   Or more specifically
what that wikipedia article refers to as "BP2" [composite] added by me: "There
is the *combination problem*: the problem of how objects, background and
abstract or emotional features are combined into a single [composite]

As you point out, there must be something physical in the subconscious
representing what the subconscious knows.  The reason we are not
consciously aware of the subconscious physical information is because it is
not computationally bound into the "composite qualitative experience" that
is our composite conscious awareness.

Does that help?
