But we're not talking about 3rd person point of view. I can not see how you reduce the subjective experience of first person to the behavior  that a third person view can evaluate! All the problem is this first person experience.
What you call "the subjective experience of first person" is just some sort of behaviour.  When you claim that you have "the subjective experience of first person", I can see that you are just showing a special kind of behaviour.  You behave as if you have "the subjective experience of first person".  And it is possible for an enough complicated computer to show up the exact same behaviour.  But in the case of the computer, you can see that there is no "subjective experience", there are just a lot of electrical fenomena interacting with each other.

There is no first person experience problem, because there is no first person experience.
