I suspect a few list members have stopped by now to follow this
thread, and I am reading it myself on and off, but I really wonder: am
I really the only one who thinks this to be a contradiction in terms,
not allowing any sensible answer? Or that mystical concepts of
"coscience" do not bear close inspection in the first place, so making
any debate on the possibility of emulation on systems different from
organic brains rather moot?
