What does consciousness require?

Interaction with the world.

But what is a world? Also, assuming computationalism, you need only to believe that you interact with a "world/reality", whatever that is, like in dream. If not you *do* introduce some magic in both consciousness and world.

Information processing. Memory. A point of view; i.e. model of the world including self. Purpose/values.

OK. Although "conscious purpose" is already a high form of consciousness, it might be self-consciousness.
