Consciousness is the feeling information has when it is being processed; if
conscious is fundamental, that is to say it comes at the end of a long line
of "what is that?" questions, then after saying that there is just nothing
more that can be said about it. And hey, it's just as good as a billion
other consciousness theories.

It's interesting that people love to spin consciousness theories because
it's so easy to do, but you really have to know what you're doing to
propose a theory of intelligence and there is no room to hide behind muddy
unprovable metaphysics or undefined pronouns. Unlike consciousness
intelligence theories are easy to prove wrong, but even if only partially
correct they could be good enough to make you a billionaire.  All
consciousness theories produce is gas.
