Hi Jason Resch 

Where is the aware subject in the computer ?
What color eyes does he have ?

Hi benjayk

Computers have no intelligence --not a whit, ?ince intelligence requires 
ability to choose, choice requires awareness or Cs, which in term requires 
an aware subject. Thus only living entities can have ingtelligence.
A bacterium thus has more intel;ligence than a computer,
even the largest in the world.

Your proof is missing a step: showing why computers cannot have an aware subject


Another problem is that your assumption that the ability to choose requires 
consciousness means that deep blue (which chooses optimum chess moves), and 
Watson (who chose categories and wagers in?eopardy) are conscious. ? don't 
dispute that they may be?onscious, but if they are that contradicts the 
objective of your proof. ?f you still maintain that they are not conscious, 
despite their ability to choose, then there must be some error in your argument.
