A comment to Consciousness explained, in under 3 minutes:

“Although​ ​we​ ​cannot​ ​phenomenally​ ​discover​ ​what​ ​we​ ​are,​ ​we​ ​know​ ​beyond​ ​any​ ​doubt​ ​that​ ​we​ ​are.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​also​ ​no​ ​doubt​ ​that​ ​’that​ ​which​ ​we​ ​are’​ ​is​ ​aware​ ​that​ ​it​ ​is​ ​and​ ​is​ ​intuitively​ ​aware​ ​that​ ​it​ ​is​ ​real​ ​and​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​only​ ​one​ ​reality.​ ​That​ ​is​ ​knowable​ ​(non​ ​phenomenally)​ ​beyond​ ​any​ ​doubt.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​a​ ​noumenal​ ​knowingness.​ ​This​ ​knowingness​ ​is​ ​the​ ​glimpse​ ​into​ ​reality.​ ​I/awareness​ ​know​ ​beyond​ ​any​ ​doubt​ ​that​ ​I​ ​am,​ ​and​ ​that​ ​I​ ​am​ ​aware.​ ​(Being​ ​and​ ​knowing​ ​go​ ​hand​ ​in​ ​hand).

The​ ​unknowable​ ​is​ ​that​ ​which​ ​appears.​ ​
The​ ​doubt​ ​arises​ ​when​ ​I​ ​know​ ​a​ ​tree,​ ​a​ ​bodily​ ​sensation​ ​or​ ​an​ ​image.​ ​What​ ​appears​ ​to​ ​be​ ​is​ ​not​ ​necessarily​ ​what​ ​it​ ​is.​ ​One​ ​could​ ​be​ ​hallucinating​ ​or​ ​could​ ​be​ ​under​ ​a​ ​hypnotic​ ​state.

As​ ​long​ ​as​ ​we​ ​confuse​ ​the​ ​knowable​ ​(awareness)​ ​with​ ​the​ ​unknowable​ ​(appearances),​ ​we​ ​remain​ ​in​ ​ignorance.”
