> Of course, this implies that the network structure of the human brain has
to have evolved while taking into account this unreliability - so there is
a humongous amount of structure devoted to error-correction. The challenge
for designers of simulations who want to port the brain into silicon by
mimicking the behavior of scanned neural circuits will be to separate the
unneeded error-correction features and code only the necessary
information-processing elements.

What if our world-modeling redundancy IS part of our necessary information

Are you content to rip your CD collection directly to a lossy format like
mp3 or do you first archive everything to a lossless format?

If we're discussing identity and consciousness,  I would like to be sure
all of the important bits are working properly.  :)
