An HLUT is an direct encoding the responses for of every possible
life of a single, particular person.
It is a tree where each node represents an instant and
which branches into different subtrees covering every possible
input the person could receive at that instant.
The tree is deep enough to encode all possible lifespans
of that person.

As you say, the HLUT is as conscious the human being it encodes.
