Consciousness V 20
Consciousness / Pauen: can be considered as a property. A property of conditions that can also occur without exemplifying this property - V 21 problem: there is nothing that could be "something like" consciousness, so that you always have to rely on the property itself, if you want to define it.
V 213
Perception / self- consciousness / Computer / Pauen: a computer that wanted to perceive itself might try to scan its parts - even if it had consciousness, it could not (using his only sense organs) in this way notice his own consciousness.
