Ah...,well...,OK,....but what is your point?

I'm sure it's not Craig's point, but it illustrates my point that while a brain is an organ of intelligence/consciousness it needs a body and an environment in which to perceive and act in order to be intelligent/conscious.

I agree. But eventually a body is nothing more than a relative description of infinities of programs, and an environment (in which you can be digitalised) will be a relatively probable local universal number/machine.
