I also agree with the above, however, this does not address the mirror neural network, which seems to record not only the actual sensory experiences and the accompanying emotions, but also has an ability to recognize approximations to the actual experience. Does it make a difference if we see someone hurt them selves with a hammer or stab themselves with a knife. In both cases we seem to be able to associate these different actions as causing pain and triggers the same biochemical (emotional ) response of "wincing" in the observer as in the person who is physically experiemcing the pain. That is the foundation of "empathy" which then may result in "sympathy". I just wonder if such a mirror neural network can be fashioned in AI. Perhaps a rudimentary form of a mirror neural network may already be found in "spell checkers".
