A quantum physicist at Chungbuk National University in Korea has provided mathematical evidence that consciousness cannot be simulated in or replicated by a computer, and in turn that it cannot be the byproduct of neurological activity in the brain.

Professor Daegene Song has provided mathematical proof that human consciousness cannot be simulated by a computing device, due to self-observation being a unique mechanism in the process of consciousness. In his paper, "Non-computability of Consciousness," Song shows consciousness as a mathematical representation, and in the process that it is not compatible with mechanical systems.

We humans navigate our way through life in individual bodily casings, each apparently sealed tight against external influences; our minds, feelings and thoughts are completely our own, totally unaffected and inaccessible to others outside our impenetrable physical forms.
