Behavior / perspective / Peacocke: if an entity displays perspective behavior, it will be correlated not only with changing sensation qualities of his experience, but also with everything else, with which the sensation features are correlated - but it does not follow that he has attitudes about his retinal irritation - therefore we need to have access to other content, related to the retina irritation.
