On a related note..


I bet readers are going to conflate the two issues (the dubious
quality of Ray's understanding of the brain with the issue of whether
or not we'll have whole brain emulation in 10 years). Then, in 10
years from now when we have some interesting whole brain emulations
running, they will then use that to claim that Ray was right all along
(even though he isn't). Oh well. The date predictions and concepts are
separate, in case anyone is wondering.
