Experience is a continuous inner process of human beings, and possibly all living systems. It is part of the natural world, but it may be differentiated from the material 'outer world' and called the 'inner world' or 'mind' or 'consciousness'.
Experience is a concrete phenomenon, not an abstraction, and so its presence can be referred to directly just like entities in the physical world.
Experience is massive and only a small part can be focused upon or given attention at any time. Only a small fraction of this small part is ever explicated: most experience remains implicit or hidden. Again, much like the physical world.
Experience is generated by human interaction with the world i.e. by perception and action. Experience is self-generating and open to endless elaboration that may be heedless of perception or action.
In the Taxonomy, Experience is the 4th Root Level in the Root Hierarchy of Endeavour. Its Primary Hierarchyelements are: sensation-L1, image-L2, emotion-L3, idea-L4, intuition-L5, identification-L6 and imagination-L7. All other conceptions (e.g. belief, thought, self &c.) are expected to be forms or derivatives of these.
