Metz I 65ff
Consciousness/Leibniz/Bieri: it is the factory as a whole which is responsible for consciousness.

Metz I 66/67
Consciousness/Bieri: not laws are the problem, certainly there are some. - Problem: why they exist, what in the brain makes it necessary that a person experiences anything? - Unlike gravity: consciousness is a system property.

II 61
Consciousness/Bieri: is no uniform phenomenon. Inner drive, inner control, awareness, sensitivity ability (in any case not the same as self-awareness).
Discriminative behavior, appropriate to a situation, coherent over a period of time, "integrated".
Some mental states are verbalizable, others are not.
Consciousness in the cognitive sense, however, does not appear to be something intellectual that is impenetrable.

Experience/Riddle: the experience is the mystery, not its representation.
Consciousness/du Bois Reymond: "cannot be explained from its material conditions".
BieriVsdu Bois Reymond: why should it be? - Thesis: it is also not explained by the material conditions, if we know (which we do not now) all the material conditions.
Consciousness/Leibniz: it is the "factory as a whole" that is responsible for consciousness.

Explanation/Bieri: it always means revealing a certain kind of relationship.
Puzzle/consciousness/Bieri: we have no idea what would be a solution, an understanding.
But it would be very strange if there was a special relationship here, which does not exist anywhere else. (VsMcGinn).
If there were a being that shows us this strange relationship, we would not understand it, we could not comprehend it.
