Miguel Nicolelis Says the Brain Is Not Computable, Bashes Kurzweil’s Singularity | MIT Technology Review

What an interesting conversation it could be of you put both of them in a room with a few beers. I bet you that the clever people are confusing their favorite words (ones that have gotten them funded) for an idea that is pretty much the same. Ray just creates a gap where mad lab rat brain experiments are more acceptable!

  1. The brain is made of elementary particles. Elementary particle interactions are computable. Ergo, the brain is computable. Penrose’s arguments (in which everyone else bases theirs) are outdated at best. When will they just let go of this obvious clinging to the supernatural?

    • Got to agree with you David, although history tells us two interesting things: 1 people overestimate the knowledge of now and: 2 time and time again, what was once magical and nonsense, moves effortlessly into science with a little explanation. Mostly as we get closer to big ideas, they are made irrelevant by a new thing we didn’t think of. If only we knew then what we know now!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment.
