True, the more conscious it became the harder it would be to control, and with computers
doubling in power every 18 months we won't be able to control them for much longer.
It's more a matter of program than computing power. It's pretty easy to program a
computer so it's uncontrollable now. Of course that won't make it intelligent. I don't
know it that means it's conscious, but if it is, that illustrates your point that
consciousness is easy and intelligence is hard.
