I think we are in agreement here Ben. I beleieve that
one of the keys to creating an SI is understanding in
as much detail as possible how our own brains work.
That much I think everyone agrees on. I go further
however and strongly suggest that another key is to
fine-tune the neuro-logic behind the complex array of
chemical activity which makes us 'emotionally happy'.
This idea of creating an SI that is the
super-embodiment of Spock speaks more about the person
suggesting it that any true SI.
