Consciousness is easy if you already have consciousness. It is impossible if you don't. Intelligence is hard if you already have consciousness, but it is impossible if you don't.

So are you now contending that intelligent machines *must be* conscious and that therefore there are no intelligent machines?

Everything assumes that consciousness exists as a possibility in the universe prior to the existence of the universe itself.

I don't even know how to parse "everything assumes"?
