Considering the expansion of computer technology, in the very foreseeable future, it will be possible to not only have a parallel processing system with the same level of complexity as the human brain, but for it to be inexpensive enough that any university can have at least one. About 10 years ago, I estimated that it would happen within 20 years, and I am still optimistic about that number (the next 10 years, now).
Is there agreement or disagreement on that point? And, secondarily, would it be possible for such a device to have a human level "monad"?
Please note that Anna "The Wholeness Principle" Lemkow told me that it was "untheosophical to even ask such a question." Which, of course, makes it all the more worth asking.
