OK. Let me get this straight. Scientist A stares at something, say X, 
with consciousness. A sees X. Scientist A posits evidence of X from a
third person viewpoint. Scientist A confers with Scientist B. Scientist B
then goes and stares at X and agrees. Both of these people use
consciousness to come to this conclusion.

Explicit Conclusion : "Yep, theres an X!"

Yet there's no evidence of consciousness?.... that which literally enabled
the entire process? There is an assumption at work....


Are NOT identities.

When you 'stare' at anything at all you have evidence of consciousness.
It's what gives you the ability to 'stare' in the first place. It's
blaring at you from every facet of your being. Without consciousness you
would never have had anything to bring to a discussion in the first place.
Yes, when you stare at a brain you don't 'see' conciousness.... but holy
smoke you have evidence blaring by the act of seeing the brain at all!
