        blather, n. strings of words in the form of assertions having no 
testable
        consequences.


    Calling it blather doesn't change the fact that you can't make an 
omniscient claim
    against someone else's non-omniscience.

    But I can make an empirically informed one.


That means that you claim to have empirical information about consciousness beyond another person's information about their own consciousness.

(a) I said I have empirical information. I didn't say it is beyond somebody 
elses.

How can you claim to have that at the same time that you claim someone else 
can't?

(b) It was you who claimed to know what John couldn't know.
