Truth and disclosure is meaningless,... deception and control is everything.
What Henry Markham is talking about (i.e. simulating a brain on a computer) is a technology that was published, patented and commercialized about 25 years ago. It was called "Holographic Neural Technology", based on non-linear phase coherence/decoherence principles, and so simple that almost any high school math student could code it onto a computer.
Now the powers that be,.. do not REALLY want Joe public to understand how very simple it is to build a cognitive, yet synthetic or silicone brain.... infinitely simpler than initially has been thought.
AND most certainly they do not want China, Russia, or any other such threatening competitor to the "status-quo".... to understand that either,...
You see.... In the real world, things are never as they seem.
Don't think scientific process, verifiability and reproducibility, due diligence, open debate, unbiased reasoning,..... Think politics, power, control, obfuscation, money, hidden agendas, deception... and thus you shall be delivered..... Hahahaha
