Here is another term created for examination of the Weltschloss I'm calling Imqualia (em /ˈkwɑːliə/ or /ˈkweɪliə/; singular form: quale) are defined as individual instances of subjective, conscious experience but in this case how I am using it is relating to our sense and the defining of 'it' as what comes across in our determinations as an implicit or implicated quality of being.

The term qualia derives from the Latin neuter plural form (qualia) of the Latin adjective quālis (Latin pronunciation: [ˈkʷaːlɪs]) meaning "of what sort" or "of what kind" in a specific instance, such as "what it is like to taste a specific apple — this particular apple now". Examples of qualia include the perceived sensation of pain of a headache, the taste of wine, as well as the redness of an evening sky. As qualitative characters of sensation, qualia stand in contrast to propositional attitudes,[Kriegel, Uriah (2014). Current Controversies In Philosophy of Mind. New York: Taylor & Francis. p. 201In philosophy of mind] where the focus is on beliefs about experience rather than what it is directly like to be experiencing.

Philosopher and cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett once suggested that qualia was "an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to each of us: the ways things seem to us".[Dennett, Daniel (1985-11-21). Quining Qualia. Oxford University Press]

What I am hoping to achieve in how I explain Imqualia as distinctive in this talk is by deriving my essence or relationship to with or what I am consciously experiencing while also defining (sharing) how it relates to the moment it arises and presents itself. I am having to relate to attitude I am projecting into while perceiving from it (metasphere creation) and how my interpreting it may be shaping its relevancy and impacts in the moment and/or shaping it as a topic so I find implicit in meaning and manner regarded as such Imqualia. This recognition helps me better adjust and relate to what I think or sense I'm dealing with.

I will continue to explore and expand the subject. Daniel Dennett identifies four properties that are commonly ascribed to qualia. According to these, qualia are: ineffable – they cannot be communicated, or apprehended by any means other than direct experience. intrinsic – they are non-relational properties, which do not change depending on the experience's relation to other things. private – all interpersonal comparisons of qualia are systematically impossible. directly or immediately apprehensible by consciousness – to experience a quale is to know one experiences a quale, and to know all there is to know about that quale. If qualia of this sort exist, then a normally sighted person who sees red would be unable to describe the experience of this perception in such a way that a listener who has never experienced color will be able to know everything there is to know about that experience. Though it is possible to make an analogy, such as "red looks hot", or to provide a description of the conditions under which the experience occurs, such as "it's the color you see when light of 700-nm wavelength is directed at you", supporters of this kind of qualia contend that such a description is incapable of providing a complete description of the experience.
