In the first case 1 corresponds to the color of a ripe tomato and 0
corresponds to the color of a leaf, so if you invert the qualia then 1
corresponds to the color of a leaf and 0 corresponds to the color of a
tomato, if it's then shown 2 wires and asked to point to the one that is
the color of a tomato and the one that is the color of a leaf the output is
exactly the same as before the inversion and the functionality identical.
And as far as experiencing qualia is concerned no subjective change has
been made at all, unless it was told as long as the naming convention had
been updated in it's memory the AI couldn't even tell that a change or any
sort had happened. In fact the conscious AI may not know anything about
zeros and ones, it might know as little about how computers work as we know
about how the biochemistry of the brain works.
