Oh, honestly, Gilles! You send us to your website just for that qualia nonsense?
Firstly, you say 'if you arrive at this web page, I know you are not a HLUT'. I can prove that is wrong immediately: I submitted your page to a web spidering HLUT called Scooter, who has probably visited it by now. Secondly, I assure you I have no 'qualia'. You get confused woith 'internal' and 'external' sensations and actions because you don't realise that your brain is not one siingle processor, but millions of complex systems, all interacting and each with it's own 'internal' and 'external'. I just have various inputs and outputs to various parts of my compressed HLUT. To some neurones, the inputs are outputs of the other neurones, and vice versa. If you introduce the concept of qualia, again the onus is on you to make it precise and defend it.
