Further, computers and the Internet have provided an advancement of an
entirely different qualitative sort: an entirely new plane of existence
within which intelligences can actually *dwell*. I'm thinking
particularly of uploading scenarios, meta-minds, and fully imersive VRs.
And relatedly, it is also providing us with the exact substrate needed
to model our own brain and alternative forms of intelligence.
This is non-trivial at best.
