I don't see how the nature of consciousness is relevant for the architecture of AGI. AGI is being developed within consciousness. Everything is/has consciousness ... even a brick. The more complexity a particular "system" allows for the more complex stuff consciousness can achieve/manifest.
If you run "The Sims" on an FPGA platform then everything within the game world is FPGA in a way ... even a virtual brick will have "FPGA-nature". More complex systems within your world (SIMS characters) will showcase more complexity and more FPGA-ness (as compared to human beings showing more interesting behaviors than bricks). The behavior of any AGI system - on the other hand - will be the result of the AGI's understanding of the fundamental nature of consciousness and reality of course. That's why I have been stating plenty of times that AGI will most likely behave like a developed Zen master and not like Ray Kurzweil on steroids.
