Indeed, but the statement Imade is still valid. It means you can open
a brain prosthesis business with the guarantee that if you look after the
technical aspects, any consciousness that was there will be preserved. Of
course, if there wasn't any consciousness there to start with there won't
be any afterwards either, but that is consistent with the guarantee.
