Ah, sorry. I must have thought it was 10^3 somehow. I was using ultimately skilled to mean one that gives the determinable best move, and ultimately dumb to mean one that plays randomly. It wasn't meant to be a measure of how much I respect the AI's ability to play chess. The 10^30 wasn't my analysis. Makes sense. I'll leave the problem with the Hard Problem of consciousness, then.
