The thing that everyone seems to forget (quite conveniently, haha) is that consciousness is deeply entwined with the unconscious. And since, by definition, we are not conscious of our unconscious, how can that be "digitized?"

Also, and quite interestingly, is the affects of hormones on the consciousness. Women who have taken testosterone have a feeling of being "on top of the world", "in control", aggressive, etc. Those are all conscious experiences that are directed not by thought, but by a chemical reaction with the brain. How is this to be captured?

Also, memories are not consciousness.

What's sad to me is that even a basic study of philosophy and biochemistry would reveal just how incredibly complex the concept of consciousness actually is. Yet again, education is clearly lacking, replaced by the misplaced euphoria of technological solutions.
