    Self awareness is arguably a consequence of meandering and interlacing perception mechanisms within the brain.

    Couldn't the robot "detect" if the other robot is itself if the picture was a mirror image? (i.e. left is right and vice versa)... they should try a photograph of the robot.

    Nice! This is the best point on the thread. Of course, just because it is self-aware doesn't make it a "person". I would think that ethically you would need to treat it as an animal.

    Think about futurama and when all the Lucy Liu's were turned bad by that guy. The first (good) Lucy Liu bot broke the rest, killing herself.

    I'm not quite sure what my point was, but hold that thought.

    What makes a 'person'? Someone who shares 99.9% of your genetic code?

    That is a key question, what is the definition of "person"? I am a person, a chicken is not. I am self-aware and so is a chicken, so self-awareness obviously cannot be the essence of personality. I honestly don't know what is.

    Yust trying to show that looks matter somehow I don't really believe that this robot or the other ones are truly self aware but for a certain time they could fool you if you aren't wearing your glasses.

    For any robot to come close to being self aware, it should now how to damage and hold things, like the difference in presure when your holding a egg or a pen, have a basic understanding of newton so if you give it a hammer it nows it's force is going to increase. Then give it a order not to damage itself, And let it lose with a hamer on a water melon and it's own CPU, if it doesn't destroy it own CPU then it has enof self awerness to be somewhat equal to a animal.
