According to one influential view, consciousness has an awareness-content structure any experience consists of the awareness of some content. I focus on one version of this dualism, and argue that it should be rejected. My principal argument is directed at the status of the supposed contents of awareness - I argue that neither of the principal options is tenable, albeit for different reasons. Although the doctrine in question may seem to be supported by the findings of researchers in meditative traditions, I question whether this evidence supports the dualism that is my target here. To conclude, I introduce an innocuous mode of pure awareness.
