This is slightly off-topic, but consider the insights into consciousness from brain research of Anil Seth who says consciousness requires biological organisms. Anil K Seth is a Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex. He is Co-Director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science and Editor-in-Chief of Neuroscience of Consciousness. His talk is called Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality.
