The video below is a very useful lecture on consciousness and and creation, discussing that the creation is alive. Scientists adhering to the Dialectical Materialist stance (which British Islam and the Dawah Movement have burrowed from the Intelligent Design Movement and claimed it as their own) believe that most of the creation around them as not conscious but sterile.
In their attempts to bring about Artificial Intelligence (AI), they reached a stumbling block.
