No. That’s not how it is. I work in AI; you can make a machine recognize a traffic light. It’s not conscious. When machines are sophisticated enough to misperceive a self, then machines will also embody the illusion of consciousness. They won’t be conscious; they will simply mis-recognize a pattern that isn’t actually there.
Wholeness can appear as perception, but there is no perceiver. That’s the illusion. The illusion is that there is something separate, a witness, from what is happening. There’s clearly no witness. But try saying that near a body that contains a brain that is fixated on the abstract concept of separation.
