Do you have some reason to deny the existence of the enteric nervous system,
or is this just another childish attempt at insult? Your self-admitted brain
dysfunction (noted in your online writing) does not include the lack of an
enteric nervous system, does it?
At least the enteric nervous system is real, unlike fictional "Friendly AI."

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as the scientific method
accurately identifies incorrect thinking.
