Sentience, Awareness, Consciousness, Feeling, Sensation; all these words refer to ‘that whereby we know what we know’

It is significant and important that we cannot indicate what we mean by one of these words without appealing to that in us which corresponds with their significance, that is, to that in us which knows that it knows. From this fact may be shown the ultimate infiniteness of sentience. All these words refer to that in and by which we know; if we persist in asking what we mean by this we can reply only, “We know what we mean”. Sentience is a property of infinity.
