As a measure of consciousness should measure all relevant experiences, it should exclusively measure experiences, and thus be immune to influences from unconscious knowledge. The issue is particularly relevant in debates about perception “in the total lack of conscious experience,” which has come to be the central topic of investigation in the attempt to measure differences between consciousness and unconsciousness (and, thus, find the relevant contrasts to measure NCCs) (Hassin 2013).
