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

It is, just show a component of human consciousness which *cannot* be
described in finite terms, and is necessary for consciousness.
