"Hi Stathis and John,

It seems to me that there is a clear reason you guys are struggling with 
all this,"

I see no evidence that either Stathis or John are struggling with it. 
They seem to understand it perfectly well, as far as I can see.

"A critical part of consciousness intelligence is the ability to be 
simultaneously aware of lots of diverse qualitative experiences."

There's that word again. I don't know why you keep using it. Could you 
explain, please, the difference between a 'qualitative' and a 
'quantitative' experience? You must think there is one, or you wouldn't 
keep using the word.

"we are also aware of lots of other qualitative pieces of information, "

Ah, yes, information too. What's the difference between 'qualitative 
information' and 'quantitative information', please?

Finally, could you please provide a definition of this phrase you keep 
using, "effing the ineffable"? On the face of it, it's 
self-contradictory, but presumably you mean something by it. What?
