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.
