Great post Akalabeth. I am going to bow out on this one, but I can say that Damasio and Guage are "close" to the reason a virtual mind is far from being simulated.

I was voted down in another thread where someone was trying to program a law system that only had laws for physics, and no laws for behavior. I said, "The term you are looking for is God."

There is more to our minds than just logic and math and science. We are not robots, we are "mushy beings," the great philosophers and thinkers of every time, and the times to come are still baffled by the human mind. They try to reduce its complexity down to a book like "The age of Reason," but I can reduce it down to even less.

We discern the difference between wrong and right, we explore and develop trains of thought.
We can be compassionate, or bitter, which will dynamically affect other parts of our behavior and our thinking patterns.

Every aspect of our mind is heavily integrated to every aspect of our being.

I'll go further to say that our being is not only comprised of mind and body, but of spirit also.
