True, but best to start working on the programming for when the time *IS* ripe, right? it would be an interesting project to play with... but maybe not more than, say a hobby, until something is feasible. Besides, with experiments on growing neurons and the work on leech neurons in the works, our own minds might be a useful tool for doing such a thing:) Though there are other ways in sight that look better, of course.
