I generally like Daniel Dennett so I hope he really didn't say that because
it's just dumb. A illusion is a thing that is wrongly perceived but to
perceive something is to be conscious of it; so the statement isn't wrong,
no tautology is, but it is pretty stupid.

As for when consciousness began I think it started 5 minutes ago when I was
created complete with false memories of me being in the first grade and
phoney memories of me writing previous posts to this list when in reality
this is my very first post.
