Two points: 

1) Why do you think introspection is subjective? By contrast, I
suspect it is one of the most objective features of consciousness - we
can test it with things like the mirror test. We can know when other
animals exhibit introspection, whilst still retaining doubt about
their phenomenal consciousness.

2) Why do you think computers can only think objectively? Bruno, of
course, argues the opposite, although from with the assumption of COMP.
