Most popular theories of consciousness are worse than wrong

Post will be expanded; Michael Graziano, author of “Consciousness and the Social Brain” writes this interesting short piece on how popular theories of consciousness can be emotionally satisfying, but wrong, instead “The machine has no way of realizing that this self-description is, well, not totally wrong, but distorted. What it has is a deep processing of information. What it concludes it has is something else—conscious experience.”
