2The Computer Representation of an Artificial Consciousness

We will now describe the computer modeling of a psychic system that generates representations for a system that has an artificial corporeality. That is, an autonomous system that may intentionally generate artificial thoughts and experience them, in accordance with the organizational description of the human psychic system that we detailed in Chapter 1. In this model, we must precisely define how the sensation of thinking is formed in an artificial system and how such an artificial system can experience its idea generation. We will thus demonstrate that there is a relation between the organizational model of human thinking and the model that can be constructed in the field of computer science, which may be programmed and implemented over large distributed corporealities.

We must find out how to represent the generative forms that make up the controllers of the generation of representations in mental landscapes, how to describe the manner in which they are activated, how they reconstitute current mental landscapes, how a representation of a form unifies its components and how this is experienced by the artificial psyche. We will also propose a model with two options. One will be the complete model that begins with an available corporeal form and which will conceptually define all the characteristics of an artificial psyche in order to implement them, starting from the basic elements and defining all knowledge, such ...
