Federico Faggin, inventor of the first microprocessor and one of the creators of the digital revolution, presents a model for consciousness that clearly spells out the answer to the question: Can a digital computer become conscious? Physics describes a meaningless world, he tells us, because meaning has been defined away - not because the world is meaningless. And in a world made of abstract information consciousness cannot exist.
