Phenomenological theory of mind based on simple concepts related to human cognition is introduced. Basic concepts of this theory are directly related to neurophysiological events in the brain and may also be extended to explain higher cognitive functions realized by the mind. This theory on the one hand solves fundamental problems in cognitive sciences, explaining puzzling behavior of human conscious experience, and on the other hand leads to useful models of mind in form of neurofuzzy systems. Such systems can compete in pattern recognition and classification tasks with neural networks and in reasoning tasks with expert systems.
