It seems you keep forgetting that the man in the room has everything that
anyone could ever hope for computers to have, yet still he cannot get 
semantics from syntax. 

In Searle's reply to his systems critics, the man internalizes the program 
and BECOMES a complex system... nay even better than that... he becomes a 
complex system WITH CONSCIOUSNESS AND INTELLIGENCE, yet still he cannot, by 
virtue of implementing a program, understand what the symbols mean.
