By qualia - assume as defined in [wikipedia]:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qualia, give or take ( up to you ) By "meaning as we experience it", perhaps I could just say "meaning", but i want to differentiate from "definition" or how a concept "fits" in relation to some larger system of concepts, etc.
I want to specifically focus on that sense of "meaning" that we have, when we feel we know that something does have a meaning.
It might be this question forces a yes - it is qualia, because you stipulate that in the question! If that is the case, I suppose an interesting follow up is if meaning as a qualia exists for us, then like red, blue, etc. it might manifest differently for every person and we never be able to detect that...are there any consequences of that, if it were the case?
One consequence might be to study the point where we first achieve the qualia meaning ( as babies or toddlers ), to experiment with the acquisition process, and see if the initial imprint of the qualia of meaning might have significantly different outcomes. As a concsiousness with the sense of meaning, I say it is a prevalent one. So, if it could differ, it would seem there is potential for far reaching impact on day to day experience.
Last - Is it even imaginable that the sense of meaning can be different?
