"...in defending the Chinese room argument against Dennett, Searle bristles, 
'he misstates my position as being about consciousness rather than about 
semantics' (p. 128), The Mystery of Consciousness."

Exactly. 

You make the same mistake as Dennett, Stuart. The CRA shows that even if Zeus 
came down from the clouds and handed us a conscious computer, that computer 
still would not understand Chinese solely by virtue of running a formal program.
