From the Phenomenology to the Mechanisms of Consciousness: Integrated Information Theory 3.0

Figure 17

Qualia generated by modular, homogeneous and specialized networks.

(A) The modular network decomposes into three small complexes and their residual interactions. (B) The homogenous system forms a complex, but it has low ΦMax and only 5 identical concepts. (C) The specialized network also forms a complex, with all but one concepts of its power set and a high ΦMax value. In the middle row, the respective concepts of each system are listed. The bottom row shows the constellation of the respective complexes in qualia space (projected into 3 dimensions for the past and the future subspaces).
