"[O]one cannot infer from X simulates Y, and Y has property P, to the conclusion that therefore X has Y's property P for arbitrary P." is tautologous. "The contrapositive of the inference is logically equivalent—X simulates Y, X does not have P therefore Y does not [have P]" is not tautologous. The two conjectuses are not logically equivalent. Hence the brain Simulator reply of the Chinese room argument is confirmed and validated.
