So you demand that a very very small part of the computer have the same
properties as the entire machine or it is not conscious. Then I must
conclude that you are not conscious, not unless you can name which one
of your neurons understands English.

And for the sake of argument letís assume your theory is true, how could
you ever prove it? If itís imposable to prove then itís not science.
