Sorry, nothing to do with Yanniru, I was just angry, you know if somebody answers you with something similar to the talk of the Hell's Angels.

But what I insist is that it's not right to use the term "consciousness" in science, no matter how many do this or who they are. Consciousness includes creativity, feelings etc and is subjective therefore, ie different people understand it differently. Terms in science must be objective, so it's better to use some other term, even "physical consciousness" and explain what it means, if the meaning of it is objective. If we use "consciousness" alone then however much we explain, it is allowed to interpret it in a widest possible sense, ie "totality of thoughts and feelings".
