You've moved on since I discussed this with you a few months ago,
since then you claimed that brain function (i.e. observable function
or behaviour) could not be replicated by machine. If you now accept
this, the further argument is that it is not possible to replicate
brain function without also replicating consciousness. This is valid
even if it isn't actually possible to replicate brain function. We've
discussed this before and I don't think you understand it.
