Problem/Chalmers: our conscious experiences are too holistic to be the sum of micro-states in the information space. This is the problem of the ratio of fine-grained to coarse-grained events (Sellars, 1965).
Problem: how can our experiences be so supple if they consist of building blocks of this kind? We leave the problem open.
