I don't argue that it is conscious, I argue that it is proposed mechanism for artificial consciousness, what means that at present there are no reasons to say that it doesn't satisfy the artificial consciousness criteria. ie "artificial consciousness is artificial system theoretically capable of achieving all known objectively observable abilities of consciousness".
I formulated one such ability and this was ability to create a necessary rule in all circumstances when it is possible based on the information it gathers, this would be possible because of the dynamism of the system. The other ability was formulated by people while trying to define intelligence, and this was ability to predict the external events in all possible environments. Prediction means that processes what fit in the environment would survive, this comes from selective deleting and also generating all possible systems what fit with others. This includes subject, what means that it must be able to act so that it can predict the external events, this would be useful in teaching such systems. The system was not taught much yet, but as little as it is, it satisfies the criteria. Theoretically they supposed to satisfy the criteria, but for example Neural Networks or other weak AI systems don't because their functionality is restricted. The most important property is that absolutely dynamic systems are absolutely dynamic, ie within bigger system (certain very small systems may be exception) any system can emerge, when system is points connected to each other.
