Outline of Conscious Modeling Framework

First post in a long time. I had trouble falling asleep last night, and this is the idea that was floating around in my mind:

  1. Scan input for modeling (this input could be a sentence, image, or even perfect knowledge of a closed system provided by some form of perception).

  2. Identify & label things (nouns) as "objects," actions (verbs) as "functions," etc.

  3. Use (& dynamically update) dictionary/knowledge base to fill out this working model by expanding characteristics & features of the component items to some reasonable limit.

  4. Cross-reference with Google-like search of memory using something akin to PageRank to generate connections, etc.

  5. Update PageRank scores with new data collected from current modeling.

  6. Commit new ideas into permanent model.

But can something as simple as this be robust enough to build a foundation of consciousness from?
