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?


You might have a point if I had written that "consciousness is processing", but I didn't, did I?

OK, then. In keeping with OOP, you're saying not that consciousness is processing but that consciousness has processing.

So you really just want to say that there are some processes, and that some of them have something to do with consciousnessness, which is neither a thing nor a process, whatever else it is. You should be embarrassed, but you're not.
