But if that
aspect of consciousness is disconnected from observable behavior
then there would be no way for
to ever discover it, there would be no way Evolution could have produced it
, being
​unrelated to
​ behavior​
 point of view it would be totally irreverent if a AI had
​that mysterious aspect​
 or not
​. I
AI or my fellow humans don't have it that's
problem not mine.

I think we should worry less about consciousness and more about
​observable ​
intelligent behavior.
