where? where? where? In the third person world, in the third person world,
the 3RD person world. Stop refuting qualia based on 3rd person arguments. We
don't live there. We live in a virtual machine which has a 3rd person
substrate but which creates a first person reality, it can create all kinds
of stuff in there that is real only inside that simulated world, such as
Yeeeellow and Greeeen and other phunky hallucinati0nz. And outside? As you
say, no qualia, no good, no evil, no yellow, no nothing.

Saying qualia are not real and that physics explains all there is to be
explained is like denying the existence of supermario and valuing
transistors over the information they encode.
