There is absolutely nothing wrong with you making that conclusion, and it
is the conclusion every one of us forms hundreds a times a day whenever we
encounter a fellow member of the species Homo sapiens who is not sleeping
or under anesthesia or dead. The only ones who don't make that conclusion
are those who just like the idea that only a brain that is wet and squishy
can be conscious, and the logical contortions they undergo to try to
preserve that belief are painful to behold.
