My detractors seem to delight in pointing out that my theory of consciousness isn't empirically falsifiable.

You know, that while they can't think of anything that consciousness is necessary to explain, or that they can't figure out how to put the 'consciousness factor' into an equation. (The opposite of being Freudian, logically unfalsifiable.)

Oh no! Not that! It's terrible to have a consistent theory that explains many mysteries and has no anomalies.
