Are you trolling Stathis? When did your far-fetched assumption of  
elemental qualia become a fact? You have deluded yourself. In your  
mind, material qualia supports Representational Qualia Theory and  
therefore must be true. That is not at all scientific and isn't even  
tenable philosophically.

Your notion of "elemental redness" aka glutamate being experienced by  
a bat echo-locating a moth is ridiculous. MSG contains glutamate, but  
Chinese food does not taste at all "red" to me but does taste savory.  
How could that be if glutamate was elemental redness? Is it also  
elemental savoriness? If I rub glutamate between between my fingers  
does it because elemental courseness? There is no redness that is not  
the simple knowledge of red and knowledge is simply remembered
