Unfortunately, nonthing in that paper tells us how to account for 
first-person experience, which is the most irrefutable aspect of our 
existence.  Psychology has a chance, AI on its current tracks has no chance, 
and neither does  neuroscience as received; only the addition of an 
introspective approach (appreciated by some psychologists over a long time 
span of history) will find out what consciousness is; what the first-person 
experience is.  There is a case to be made that the fields are 
complementary; introspection would add important data /explanadums those 
other fields are supposed to be providing analysis and explanation of!
