But again, why model the brain? The brain operates on neural "wiring," capable of sending signals at a pathetic crawl compared to electric impulses on a computer chip. It's slow, messy, and mired in psychological neurosis linked to being raised a mammal: you're shot out of a warm place, confronted with large beings with bright lights, brought home to the realities of a human family. I mean every human parent fucks up their kids somehow... Too loving, too patriarchal...whatever. We're fucked. All I'm saying is that you'd be better advised to contrive an "intelligence" from the ground up, unlimited by all of the problems that have evolved with human intelligence. It's as if we have this wonderfully powerful computer on which is installed a fantastically flawed, utterly labrynthine operating system that has been fed every "NEW UPDATE!" and Microsoft bug-laden install ever created... Take your own computer, feed it cookies and spam and Bill Gates shenanigans for 5 billion years... Or start from scratch.
