I’ve written to Prof. Leander to ask whether he views Erythropsidinium as a mechanical device whose operations are understood. He just replied and does agree, “. . .  that the function of the ocelloid involves straightforward molecular (cellular) mechanisms organized in a very novel way.” I’ve further inquired whether he thinks these are simple mechanical systems or whether they have some degree of awareness. I’ll keep you posted on his reply.

What do you mean what you write that “it’s the same awareness game as all the others”? What are you saying about the nature and presence of awareness?
