"...assuming that _every_ computation is conscious qua computation? "
brings up in my mind: thinking in comp (at least: in numbers) translates
'conscious' into 'computed' ??????
(That would imply an elevation from the binary embryonic contraption as our
"computer" into more sophisticated systems, if I dare say: 'analogue'?)
