Scientists Want To Put Consciousness Into A Machine?

Their view of consciousness is a perception-memory-decision-making device; the favoured think that they will live forever in a machine.

Consciousness is not a thing. It is life itself, and cannot be switched on and off. Machines can be made to do anything and remember anything, but that’s all. They only appear to be sentient because some scientists think that consciousness is just a decision-maker.

Whatever it is that they think they are putting into a machine will forget it was a living being, beyond perception and memory.

A machine is a just recording device – which, like a dream, could turn into a nightmare. Machines can neither love nor have empathy.
