Agreed. The "If so you will conclude" part means precisely "you will
conclude after you have talked to one in a live demonstration." However,
this is also one positive vote for the Searle Test as the measuring rod for
conscious machines, meaning if it passes, I get your vote. And yes, the
Lucas Droid Trademark and my Droid Patent should work as a team, and he is
in fact, the first on my list to have talk to my prototype in a private
demonstration sometime in February 2006.
