Fascinating post. The "illusion of qualia" is perhaps something like the
"illusion of consciousness" - who is being fooled? (Who is the Master who
makes the grass green?)
My 2c on the Turing Test is that "ELIZA" passed it, so if you're being
pernickety that was solved in the 60s (I think it was) - but the real test
is whether "ELIZA" or "cleverbot" or whatever would *continue* to pass it
for, say, the duration of a voyage to Saturn (or Jupiter in the movie
version). People manage to pass it for a lot of their lives, though I
would say, sadly, not for all of them (people or lives).
