Researching into our past, scientists use different methods, from looking at the night sky to digging traces of our past and
analyzing DNA. I propose here another method, that can have the potential of shedding more light into our history and the
type of entities that we are. Working under philosophical idealism, I propose that evolution is in the first place the evolution of
consciousness, and thus the traces of evolution are mostly not to be found in our physical bodies, but in our consciousnesses. I argue
that qualia are selected by evolution in order to solve evolutionary problems, and thus, looking into our qualia we can learn about
our evolutionary history.
