Bio-Machine Consciousness

"Unless dualism or vitalism is true (in which case you have some extra, secret ingredient in you),
you are made of robots--or what comes to the same thing, a collection of trillions of macromolecular
machines. And all of these are ultimately descended from the original macros. So something made of
robots can exhibit genuine consciousness, or genuine intentionality, because you do if anything does."
