When I was a child, I picked up a young rooster who while looking into my eye through he saw an opponent and peck my eye… since it was the very first experience that that happened how could I have reacted in time to protect my vision?
The reflex of the animal was to react to what it perceived as another rooster; it did not have the capacity to understand that it was looking only at a reflection of “self” in my iris.
The reflex of the human being was, even in the absence of that particular experience, to protect the eye.
Consider too that a compilation of experiences cannot give voice to your inner self–that voice that you have in your mind as you think, day dream, read, or engage external stimuli.
Consider too how a person can hold a thought while running another thought or an outside stimuli.
Now, take a computer system, it could be populated (as the internet) with millions upon millions of facts/experiences… yet, it lacks consciousness–there is no functionality beyond what is programed to do; where there’s no direct command/control program data is simply stored material.
