Summary
This book discusses two main cultural problems behind the failure of machine consciousness and artificial general intelligence (AGI) projects over many decades. The first problem recognizes that building a conscious AGI means building an artificial scientist. The book identifies the responsible pitfalls in mainstream scientific behavior and eliminates them by proposing a new operational framework for scientists called "Dual Aspect Science". The second problem arises because scholars involved in machine consciousness and AGI essentially aim to replicate brains with computers. They are demonstra
