I think I agree with you on this. Until the hardware configuration IS the
software, computers won't ever be very much like brains unless the hardware
is also simulated. The hardware of the brain, where the connections are,
and the thresholds of various neurons, and maybe many other things are what
give a particular connectome it's power. Glad I could find something to
agree with you about. :-)
