I) We can record and playback neuronal activity in mice and show they behave as if reliving the recorded experience (overwrite activations)
1) Do the same on a human, recording all state (say 10 minutes), replaying it. A lived experience.
2) Remove the connections between neurons (you are overwriting the activation anyway) and do the replay. This should still be a conscious experience.
@trevorflowers Whatever that something is, it doesn't know it's not me staring out of the kitchen window thinking about this.

3) Without the interconnects, the neurons could be arbitrarily located, say, outside a skull, distributed around a lab. Something is still having a conscious experience are they not?
4) If 4 is true, then the state being replayed by a computer falls under the same deduction does it not? Cannot it be said that the conscious experience is occuring in two places?
