And you know that how ? Because you said if a machine acted in every way as a human being you would still says it is not conscious... but you can't say that if consciousness wasn't falsifiable. How could you know a disproof before knowing it ? You asked for how to falsify computationalism, showing consciousness cannot be emulated on machines is enough whatever the proof is. > > > Showing an infinite > > components necessary for consciousnes would prove computationalism wrong, > > Also not falsifiable. It is, just show a component of human consciousness which *cannot* be described in finite terms, and is necessary for consciousness. > I can't prove that you are conscious or that you > don't require infinite components. > > > showing that a biological neurons is necessary for consciousness would > > prove computationalism wrong... and so on. > > Not possible to prove, Why wouldn't it be possible to prove...
