the fact that the assertion ('I experience') is made is proof that something makes the assertion, is it not?
Language is a publicly conditioned mode of behavior enacted between physical organisms in the world. Conscious experience (as you and I are using this term) is not an empirical phenomenon in the world, nor are there any empirical phenomena in the world that make it useful to postulate any such concept. Therefore the assertion that "I experience" informs nobody of anything. The "something that makes the assertion" is a physical organism in the world, and there is nothing to be gained by associating the physicalorganism with some putative "experiencer" of conscious experience.
