It is easy to imagine a simple process which is aware of a single bit of
information.  Let's say it is some program which is connected to a photo
sensor, thus it can tell if the room is dark or light, and when the process
is queried for this status it can report whether the room is light or dark.
Though it concerns only a single bit, is this not an example of awareness?
Perhaps human consciousness is fundamentally no different, it is just
awareness of a vastly greater amount of information (more bits).
