It follows from causalism and functionalism , seemingly absurdly , that our private visual experience is identical . ( iii ) Suppose I do not understand Chinese , but , solely on the basis of the shapes of the letters , and rules connecting them merely as shapes , do the right things . For example , I pass through a sequence of states identical to one passed through by a native Chinese speaker in being presented with a question in Chinese and giving the answer in Chinese . It follows , on causalist and functionalist views , that I am understanding Chinese , which again seems absurd . ( iv ) Differently , it seems difficult to accept that consciousness is tolerably conceived when it is so conceived that it follows that anything that can be regarded as passing through certain sequences of causal or logical states is conscious . As suggested by one formidable opponent of the views in question ( also the author of the objection having to do with understanding Chinese ) we do not so understand consciousness that we can believe that it must be possessed by a set of water pipes , paper clips , and old beer cans , provided that they instantiate a certain programme .

Sven Hjerson 's lugubrious face lit up in a brief smile . ` Then I am able to give you a reassurance , madam , ' he said . ` This funicular is looked after by an Englishman . You can rely upon the observations of Sven Hjerson for this . I noted him working on the machinery while we were waiting to ascend . He was dropping one of his tools and let forth a number of obscenities . His voice was what is called , I am understanding , Cockney or perhaps Australian . ' ` Yes , ' said Arabella Buckley . ` Yes , well , that is reassuring . Only … ' ` Yes ? ' ` Well , if he was repairing the machinery , it ca n't have been safe in the first place , can it ? ' Then Sven Hjerson took his revenge for the past tiresome two hours . ` Madam , ' he said , ` you are right . We can not be certain . Definitely not safe . '

Hence the cloak-and-dagger stuff , ' she went on , slowly , her voice deceptively calm . ` Hence the need to ship it in under maximum security , I presume ? And hence Stephanie 's shock-horror performance when I made my innocent enquiries ? ' ` Precisely . ' She stared at him , in growing disbelief . She 'd never really believed he was importing undeclared goods , or in any way breaking the law . But this was altogether different … ` So , these crates contain your prize exhibits for the business fair ? Am I understanding this correctly ? ' Her voice shook with suppressed anger . ` At last , I think we can safely say that you are understanding the situation correctly . ' Roman 's voice was bitingly sarcastic . He was observing her anger with a wry gleam in his eyes . ` And when , exactly , were you going to tell me of their existence ? So that , as your specially commissioned public relations consultant , I could use their impact to full effect ? Maximise their importance to your company 's image ? ' she enquired sweetly .

` Jolly good , Murti , ' she would say . ` That 's enough for today . ' This pantomime went on happily until the first week of May , when Mrs Puri appeared one morning unannounced at our door , intent on doing a spot-check of her property . She took one look at the sand dunes drifting around our sitting-room and shook her head . ` What is this ? ' she said , drawing a circle in the sand with her stick . Olivia began to explain about not wanting to upset Murti , but Mrs Puri raised her hand . ` Mrs William , ' she said firmly . ` I am thinking you are not understanding the management of these people . ' ` But … ' ` If Murti is not doing her duty properly then you must be telling her to do it again . ' ` But Murti hates sweeping , ' said Olivia . ` Then , ' said Mrs Puri , rapping her stick on the floor . ` Then she must be made to enjoy it . ' While all this was going on in our flat , something was clearly up at International Backside . Balvinder Singh was in high spirits .

Okay . What else then what other methods do we have besides having eye contact what else might we do to involve the audience to make them feel involved ? Questions Yes , absolutely so questions er a very definite way of involving the audience and again it gives a measure of feedback does n't it because if you get the right answer you know that they are with you and you know they are understanding what you have to say . But obviously if there 's some hesitation over it then perhaps you just need to step back a stage in what you 're saying and er er go over it again to for clarity , and Tony what 's another way of involving the audience ? Well you 've got to get them to participate but I suppose you would do if you question them Well yes I guess you would . Jeff what 's another way that you might make the audience feel that they 're involved ?

The arousal I 've always thought that er that you should n't be nervous but you always are but obviously as you 're nervous when you do a whole host of things and nerves as you become more skilled at it go away er and I 'd assume that like most things that the nerves will totally disappear and was somewhat surprised to find out that you 're always aroused that 's right when when you do that , and obviously the need to gauge the erm presentation against audience contact to see that they 're involved and they 're obviously understanding what you 're saying and pick them up and grab them . So for me the three things were the structured thought patterns plus the arousal and the need for audience contact . What did you think Sarah ? I found the three most important things for me yesterday were the span of conception the clusters and the whole subject of nerves . The span of conception useful to gather that three is the best number and dividing it up into threes and threes again was simplest and effective way of setting it up .
