you can't even build a mathematician using only nand gates, much less a yumanI just don't think its that unbelievable that something like consciousness is an emergent phenomenon with a variety of necessary antecedents. I don't know much about logic gates, but apparently you can build a computer using only nand gates. So everything we consider a function of computers is reducible to these base things - and consciousness would just be a higher order ramification/consequent of such functional units.
Yeah as far as I know you're right, I was just using nand gates as an example of how something as complex as a computer can be built using a single kind of unit, yet alone when you factor in other logic gates. But then again, maybe those other gates are just expedients, and can be replaced by such and such arrangements of nand gates. Totally don't know there.you can't even build a mathematician using only nand gates, much less a yuman
