Our brians are made out of organic material. It is very likely that the macro features we have such as consciousness, mind, qualia etc are an emergent property from these complex physical properties. But could these emergent properties come from an extremly complicated device that is not made out of organic material? If the answer is yes than we will oneday have nonorganic things that function just like humans. If no than there must be something speical about carbon and the way it interacts with other chemical elements. What do you think?
