  • The brain is made of matter. Matter is subject to the laws of physics.
  • Newtonian mechanics is sufficient.
  • Operations appear to be properties of material arrangements.
  • Knowledge of signals and systems is useful.

If it seems not obvious how to make a brain, it is because the patterns by which the laws of physics are employed to make a brain have not been published and turned into laws of brain physics.

Only this and nothing more. (Edgar Allen Poe)

  • A robot can have a synthetic brain made of different material than an animal brain.
  • The complexity of that synthetic brain is unbounded.
  • There is nothing to impede that except the lack of knowledge about what makes a brain a brain.
