Adding a news group on subject to gather more responses.
Also I'm not expert on this area, tell me it there is anything terribly
wrong with my theories.

Why do you think that the only way of reaching human 'level' AI (gosh,
do we level it?) is to create a brain? To my opinion that is nonsense.
We could make it digital or analog, parallel or sequential; it doesn't

To my theory the neurons are using chemicals to communicate (synapses)
and digital computers use only one type of electricity (except in
optical computers that use different colors of light), so you can't
quite say that is digital. Also the neurons are using amplitude
controlled gates, amplifiers and other amplitudal stuff that is in the
very core of being "analog".

If that is what you base your opinion on, then I need some more
information for an opinion/answer. Perhaps the people at
news:bionet.neuroscience can post some of it.
