This paper aims to review some of the dominant philosophical, mathematical and neuroscientific theories surrounding consciousness and their essential properties. After establishing the conditions in which consciousness can be attributed, it will do so by briefly providing a comparative analysis of Integrated Information Theory (IIT), Global Neuronal Workspace (GNW) and Higher-Order theories of Consciousness amongst others1, and present our own thesis with robust argumentation. Finally, it will consider implications of these theoretical frameworks for understanding and replicating consciousness in artificial systems. Specifically, drawing upon the transformative capabilities of LLMs such as GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) models, it will examine the potential for these systems to exhibit characteristics indicative of consciousness1.
