Well OK, I don't know that with absolute certainty, maybe you have a proof but are keeping it secret for some strange reason, but my knowledge is more than diddly squat because I very strongly suspect you have no such proof and I'm probably right. But I do know for certain that you don't have a valid proof that 2+2=5 or a way to directly detect consciousness in any mind other than your own. You can't have it both ways.
