Andrew Millington Posted about 1 year ago Do you believe the human brain will continue to increase its capabilities? Well my answer depends on if you mean within the current framework of the brain or outside it via natural or artificial evolution. If the question is inside the current framework, I don't think so because that locks our brains down into basically their current capacity. While we may develop a higher ability with a particular skill or something similar, the way the average brain develops precludes anything fundamentally new I think. With that said, if something freaky happened while a brain was being formed, it might actually do something useful instead of causing death or migraines, seizures, etc. But that's one case and is also in a sense outside the current framework. If we're taking artificial or natural evolution into account, I think that the brain could emulate anything that can be represented purely with circuits or programming. Bio-control could be done too. Other technology like radios could be emulated if organs formed to make up the hardware parts.
