Okay, so far that is quite silly. Bravo!

y continued: So consciousness in this model is not subjective at all. It is completely objective. We just are unable to detect this charge because we are unable to detect dark matter. Yet we know that it is there. Read either of the links for more detail.

Here he uses the words "subjective" and "objective" as precise technical terms in the energy of consciousness-- get the details elsewhere...very silly! Bravo!

y said more: By the way, it follows that a sufficiently complex artificial computer can have consciousness on the same basis.

Oh? DOES it 'follow?' Or is it HYPOTHESIZED? Sorry to split hairs, but it was not nearly.

Still silly though! Yay!

y said, On this basis Bohm had it backwards. It's not the electron that has consciousness, but the pilot wave medium, which contains the implicate order if such a thing exists. This consciousness can guide electrons as well as detect them."

Okay, that was not silly.
Instead, try: IF such a thing exists,
THEN the pilot wave medum contains the implicate order" - that's sillier, don't you agree?

I am still waiting to see what ETHICAL system is suggested by the new theory. This could be such a silly world! Sigh.
