Brent:

 2 questions (and pls try to take them seriously):

1. do you have a common-sensibly expressible meaning for 'conscious' - in
this respect, of machines (computers being so? (conscious of - is easier,
but also not obvious).

2. The BBC article allows 'scans' to inform about 'theoretical' (or whatever
is the appropriate word they use) topics. Do they have a price-list: how
many mAmps refer to 'delusional aberration' vs. how many to 'inductive
prognostication'?
I think all they could do is to differentiate between DONE thinking whether
it was false or believed as true. This is also more than I like (in the
wrong hands).
