I was sentence-by-sentence restating the post to which I was replying. Which sentence did I restate incorrectly?

The problem with your argument, in case you weren't noticing my subtle reductio ad absurdum, is that to whatever degree your argument applies to theoretical machine intelligences, it also applies equally to human brains. I specifically mentioned your human brain in case you're a solipsist, but the hard truth is that in arguing that no minds are possible anywhere ever.

You are seriously throwing out the baby with the bathwater here.
