Dan:  In re your arguement that the brain is deterministic, how can you say
it is so fixed?  The sheer number of "input" and "output" neurons and the type
of input, processing, etc., practically guarantees a random input leading to
some probability of random output.  In addition, we speak of a complex system
which is self-modifying; it learns, gets damaged (daily), repairs damage, and
constantly must process new stimuli.  You speak of a brain as some sort of
static "neural net" computer model, not a living system.  

Jerry.
