Qualia

About: qualia (stanford encyclopedia of philosophy)

 
An event happens and then it is felt in a specific way.  Or a thought occurs and it also is felt in a specific way.  We call the distinctive subjective character felt when events or thoughts occur "qualia". 

The same event or thought is not always felt in the same way.  Certainly how it is felt varies from person to person.  But it also varies within the same person depending on their context and their mood. 

What narratives or stories a person believes will affect and/or determine the nature of their qualia.   For example if you believe an event is supposed to happen within a story in which you believe, and it does happen, then it will be felt with an component of "satisfied expectation".   Whereas if it is not expected to happen within the narrative, then it might be felt with an element of surprise.
