Sure, it shows that we cannot, in a given human, separate that human's consciousness from his behavior. I agree with that. 

But it does not follow that weak AI = strong AI as you've claimed, or that we should consider strong AI a feasible research project, or anything of the sort. It only seems to because of the two false assumptions I mentioned.
