See Waking Up

It seems unlikely we can understand consciousness from looking at brain processes. This is even more complicated than trying to understand Windows by looking at the voltage changes in the CPU. There is no outward aspect of the brain that suggests it contains consciousness. If we did not experience it directly ourselves, we would never guess that consciousness exists.

This does not mean it exists outside of the world (some sort of dualism), it just means that it is a result of physical processes, but a result that seems to only be visible by experiencing it.
