This study deals with the relationship between empirical science and subjective experience, and provides a critical approach to the distinction between the easy problems and the hard problem of consciousness. The paper treats this distinction as a misleading one because it divides the problem of subjective experience from reasonable thought. According to this distinction, the efforts of the empirical sciences are applicable only in the realm of simple problems. On the other hand, according to common belief, empirical science is totally incompetent to explain consciousness and subjective experience. This study aims to show that this belief is mistaken by presenting several key examples. These examples are based on the results of contemporary empirical science that are very closely related to subjective experience.
