Hi Jason Resch

Where is the aware subject in the computer ?

Where is the aware subject in you?

What color eyes does he have ?

A blind and deaf person still has a subject, no?

Computers have no intelligence --not a whit, 爏ince intelligence requ ires 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燡eopardy ) are conscious. 營 don't dispute that they may be燾onscious, but if they are that contradicts the objective of your proof. 營f you sti ll maintain that they are not conscious, despite their ability to ch oose, then there must be some error in your argument.
