But I don't believe that  Alan Grayson is conscious all the time, not when
he's sleeping or or under anesthesia or dead because during those times he
is not behaving intelligently.

By using your same logic would it also be foolish extrapolation for GPT-4
to conclude that human beings are conscious? That is the more important
question because in the long run it won't  really matter if humans think an
AI is conscious or not, but an AI's opinion of human beings will matter a
lot, at least for the humans.
