Very interesting.

I'd say it must have consciousness in the same way my man-slice example would have.

That sounds absurd until you remember that it isn't a different consciousness, it's the same consciousness viewed from a different perspective.

You might have really hit on something there about the question of whether light particles have depth, since light can be both a particle and a wave. Worth looking into and thinking about because there might be some bridge there between the two dimensions in the duality effect.
