I have a hunch - but who has something better to offer than just a
hunch - that qualia are related to self referencing.

Just like paradoxes, for example. When a function becomes its own
argument, strange things happens. A paradox can arise.

Mathematicians therefore don't like self referencing, they try to
eliminate it. But for to be aware of yourself, to experience qualia,
underlying processes have to be a little cross related. I guess.
