Well, I don't see how that denies consciousness... In the other hand, 
currently, physics and chemistry don't explain everything... and maybe Bruno 
hypothesis is what underlink all this... still that does not deny 
consciousness phenomena. And still I *can't* accept any (so called) proof 
that consciousness does not exists given *I* at least am conscious for sure.
