How is consciousness distinguished from things? If one, f.i., sees a watch on a wrist of a sumptuous arm, gleaming in the recesses of a dark restaurant, what is not supposed to be included in the "seeing", that is, so to say, left over, that is the "object"?
Do people when they speak of "consciousness" mean something like solipsism? Or, do they distinguish it from something else, such as a measurable object, which accords with a science of objectified objects? I really don't understand why one claims so-called consciousness is something obvious. As though we all know what we mean by it, and the problem is linking it to "something". What is this "something"?
