What is your interest in discussing consciousness?

My biggest interest is in Newtonian determinism vs. uncertainty/free will. Is consciousness a product of self-awareness? Are we in control of our thoughts or are they simply part of the cascade of particle interactions that drive physics > chemistry > biology? How much of the human neural network needs to be mimicked to create consciousness in AI? How can we be sure if something (animal or AI) does or does not possess consciousness?


I'm an Ocean/Mechanical Systems Engineer with a passion for science and philosophy.
