As I've posted before, when we know how look at a brain and infer what it's

we know how to build a brain that behaves as we want,
If w can build a brain that behaves as we want rather than how it

So because my children behave as I want they don't have brains!?
If that was all that they did, then yes, they would be robots. If you
train your children that behave as you want, does that solve the Hard
Problem?

I don't think there is a solution to the 'hard problem', I think it's ill posed. The fact that my children behave well, exhibit intelligence and kindness, doesn't solve even the engineering problem of consciousness because I don't know how their brains are constructed - I couldn't make one from scratch.
