Some theorists have fallen prey to the dreaded compulogical fallacy. Assigning traits/behaviors/attributes/cognitive states that can only logically be assigned to a (mostly) intact human being and some non human animals to computers and/or machines. It is the mereological fallacy of the 21st century and I see it over and over and over again on these pages and many others. Neuroscientists have still not recovered from their logical blunder, will computer scientists see the light before it is too late. Somehow I doubt it.
