The Origin of Qualia

When we compare the qualias of the same variety or sub-variety of our cultivated tastes and sensations, one of the first points which strikes us is that they generally differ more from each other than do the individual qualias of any one species or variety in a state of nature.

And if we reflect on the vast diversity of the tastes and sounds which have been cultivated and which have varied during all ages under the most different mind architectures and inputs, we are driven to conclude that this great variability is due to our domestic qualia having been raised on information landscapes not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which its parent qualia species had been exposed to in nature.
