Subjective states can somehow be extracted from brains via a computer. The ingenius folks who were miraculously able to extract an image from the brain that we saw recently
http://gizmodo.com/5843117/scientists-reconstruct-video-clips-from-brain-activity somehow did it entirely through computation. How was that possible? There are at least two imaginable theories, neither of which I can explain step by step: a) Computers are themselves conscious (which can neither be proven nor disproven) and are therefore capable of perception. or 2) The flesh of the brain is simultaneously objective and subjective. Thus an ordinary (by which I mean not conscious) computer can work on it objectively yet produce a subjective image by some manipulation of the flesh of the brain. One perhaps might call this "milking" of the brain.
