I think qualia are the result of non-Turing-computable processes that we probably can't duplicate artificially with today's technology, so why bother? I really, really doubt that they're necessary for intelligence. The only reason I brought up <qualia> was to emphasize that we don't know enough about the Universe to say what can or can't be objectively real.
