Hi Eugene,

I think I'm with you on this one, as in I'm in the "Material Property
Dualism" camp on theories of consciousness: (
http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/88/7 ).

And note that the "Functional Property Dualism" camp is the current leading
consensus camp, with more supporters like Chalmers, and a bunch of other
leading thinkers than our camp. (see: http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/88/8 )
And this camp predicts that consciousness is possible on anything, from
water pipes, to people in a "Chinese room", and yes, including silicon.

So, I'd like to hear more about how or why you think you can guarantee
uploads won't work on CMOS, or even electronics?
