You are trying to pull a fast one with the above question which is unnecessary and deceptive. Why should we be bothered at all to prove consciousness is human?Dontaskme wrote: ↑Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:56 am Are you willing to slow down with all the explaining, the words which are just thoughts are obscuring what we are trying to understand. Understanding of what we are trying to understand can be done within the silence of just pure thoughtless being. You might aswell just flush all those words down the toilet for the good they are going to do.
So lets keep it simple.
Lets start with this..
Where is the proof that conciousness is human?
Try and give an answer that can be written on a postage stamp, and understood by a child.
You should ask;
What is human consciousness?
Human consciousness can be inferred empirically.
Consciousness: the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings.
If we refer all livings and animals we can easily infer what is human consciousness from human behaviors and thoughts in relation to other animals.
If a person is in coma or put under anesthetic, he will lose his consciousness.
There are also expression of consciousness between being awake, asleep, dreaming, drunk, etc.
Human consciousness is primarily supported by the brain and secondary the body..
Thus it would be beneficial for humans to understand what are the neurons that support human consciousness, i.e. which neurons are deactivated and switched off when one is injected with anesthetic.
The hard problem of consciousness is one major issue, i.e. how is consciousness derived from physical matter. But this is of less utility than understanding the neural circuits that generate human consciousness.
Once we understand the neural make-up of human consciousness or clues to the hard problem of consciousness, there is a possibility of generating artificial human consciousness in robots which can be of use [fool proof] to humanity.
"Where is the proof that consciousness is human?"
is unnecessary which will lead to ending with an illusion.
