Hi Bruno,

My own subjectivity is 1p. I don't believe a computer can
have consciousness, but suppose we let the computer have
consciousness as well.

Let a descriptor be 3p. Let my consciousness = 1p

But the computer's consciousness would be different, say 1p'
-- because, let's say, it's less intelligent than I am. Or it's not travelled around the world as I have.
Or it is only 3 years old. I've only used it for 3 years.
Or it is Christian while I am a pagan.
Or it is a materialist while I follow Leibniz.
Or I am drunk and it is sober.

Then the meaning of the 3p to me = 1p(3p).
The meaning of the 3p to the computer = 1p'(3p).

These obviously aren't ?oing to be the same.
So comp can't work or work with any reliability.



You could use this same argument to "disprove" the consciousness of every other person on earth.
