Phenomena such as an afterimage are parts of the *contents* of experience. Such contents may be categorized as quantifiable and unquantifiable, but "experience", taken to mean the sum total of all of that content, is not a part of that content. The sum total of the parts cannot be a part of itself, but the *idea* of that sum total *is* just such a part.
