Incredibly detailed & simplified explanation of how little we know about the about the human brain & how far away General Artificial Intelligence is

Clarified TFY.

The humbleness he displays is somewhat unique among committed materialists, and for good reason.  After admitting with such candor that neuroscience can not explain the conscious experience, it is astonishing that he has no problem stating

As a neurosurgeon, I have to accept that everything I am thinking and feeling as I write this is a physical phenomenon.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I don't understand your question.  You can't do brain surgery if you believe that some aspects of human intelligence are not necessarily physical phenomena?

He needs to be dealing with everything in its physical manifestation.

He wrote "As a neurosurgeon, I have to accept that everything I am thinking and feeling as I write this is a physical phenomenon."

Not "has a physical manifestation." Which is not at all controversial.  MRIs measure the physical manifestations of thoughts.

Something tells me that even if the IQ differences were hypothetically proven as undisputed fact Watson would face the same treatment for daring to espouse something politically incorrect. These same liberals who claim there are no differences will hypocriticaly avoid the ghetto neighborhoods late at night while claiming that anyone who stereotypes is racist.

People reacting to the Gillette ad: https://thenextweb.com/opinion/2019/01/15/gillette-triggers-twitters-right-wing-elite-with-toxic-masculinity-ad/

Gotta love how Peirs Morgan is considered part of the far right in this article. #FakeNews
