"We are heavy duty neurobiologists and we have done a study Mr. Searle. We are convinced you are not conscious." (7:01)
That's what happened to me, but without people. Instead it was a diagnosis. The diagnosis says I am not conscious.
Give the diagnosis PVS when someone doesn't appear conscious and all is fine. Then they get better....
"When people do get interested in it [consciousness] they say the most appalling things." (0:48) This is the letter explaining to me I'm in a coma http://thoughtfulveg.blogspot.com/2014/05/dear-vegetable.html This letter is just an extension of the first error.
PVS can't be "not conscious." Carry it through and see what happens? I am in a coma. Just change the "P" in PVS back to "Persistent". "Persistent" knows no time limit. "Permanent" is forever.
This says PVS becomes permanent after "3 months in the US" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistent_vegetative_state
