Wow, consciousness argument! Consciousness is the final frontier, after which all pseudoscience
with its magical thinking
will look utterly miserable.
Amazing, but removing tiny 310 cubic millimeters from your brain's centromedian nucleus makes your all-powerful consciousness suddenly disappear.
More trivial trick with bottles of scotch may temporarily reproduce that effect on your almighty consciousness.
Consciousness is a product of brain physiology. And that's all there is to it.
