No, you couldn't, without bullshitting. I mean, how much do you have to have on the ball to say that some processes are "conscious processing" when you're saying that consciousness is processing? It could be some, it could be all. You don't know. That's why you're bullshitting. The difference between some and all is not subtle. Somebody less intent on bullshitting wouldn't try to say that one unspecified process was "conscious processing" and another was not. It might be true, but you don't know. You're just guessing, and you're guessing about a point that's not very subtle. Why are you trying to sound as if you know something? You know that something you're not aware of falls outside the attention schema. Brilliant. Welcome to the Department of Tautology Department.
