If you refer to my previous mail, you will agree that HLUT is another
system whose information is enormously larger than that actually stored in
a human brain ( I suspect in fact that it is physically impossible to store
as much information in our Universe). That's a reason to think that HLUT is
NOT conscious (at least that's what I propose !)
