Yeah, that's real funny.<quoted text>Can a rock be conscious?
That should answer your first question.
And I can only guess as to what the "foundations" of consciousness are, but as I said before, the framework for consciousness probably began with simple cells "learning" to share useful bits of information between themselves. Perhaps cells close to food would alert other nearby cells with a simple signal. Perhaps this evolved into more complex behaviors over time. I don't know.
Now what foundations are you claiming?
Or you just make up BS and hope you are not called out?
Found another fraud!!!
Check mate!!! Bye Bye now...
