Qualia are experiences - touches, smells, tastes, colours, feelings, nerves, sounds, lights, darknesses, bodily sensations, emotions, energies - that come to life in human beings. Qualia live in the gap between the objective world and the cognitive mind, where the living, breathing human subject encounters sensations that are meaningful and real without words.
