No because we also realize intuitively that computers are unconscious 
without any logical analysis. That's why behaving 'like a robot' or a 
machine is synonymous with mindless repetitive action. Just because we can 
make an optical illusion which fools our eye into seeing three dimensional 
perspective in a 2D painting doesn't mean that we can't authentically tell 
when something natural is 3D.
