Oops. to finish... For all devices x, if x is complex is some sense then x is conscious in some (possibly other) sense.

In other words, for all devices x, (a) -logically entails- (b): (a) there is a partition D_t of t such that T(x; R, D_t) = 1 (b) there is a partition (D_t)' of t such that T(x; C, (D_t)') = 1. Basically, when I continue my so called algebraic physics paper, I will probably see how far I can get by not defining C. I do at least have a notion for R: it will be a standardized measure of pseudo-randomness or complexity that at least fairly measures all devices and has no bias....
