philosopherPlus: I got your site this time. Interesting. Your descriptions and discussions of helpful psychological concepts are quite clear and practical. What is your training? You don't sound like a philosopher. What do you think of my chapter 3, which deals with philosophy of life? I didn't read all your observations, but I wondered why you felt the need to suggest that a machine wouldn't be likely to have consciousness? What is we humans became smart enough to create (manufacture) a living brain exactly like anyone else"s along with a functioning body, would it have consciousness? I would suppose so, why not? But what is the point? Best wishes with your site. Clay Psychological Self-Help (http://mentalhelp.net/psyhelp/)
Response to Dr. Tucker-Ladd
It's true that an we have every reason to expect an exact duplicate of a human being to be conscious but by duplicating the material aspect of a human being we would still not be duplicating the conscious part.. Computers are not conscious. This topic is relevant to my religion section.
I am not formally trained in philosophy and I don't agree with most philosophy that I have read.
