That's you're view, but it leads to impasse. It's like claiming that other people aren't really conscious even though they behave as if they're conscious. Behaviour isn't enough, you have to actually be the entity to know *for certain* that it is conscious. Furthermore, you could claim that not only is the entity not conscious, it isn't intelligent, since it'sa intelligent-like behaviour could be a fluke. -- Stathis Papaioannou -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
