You heard it here first. My theory on how to make a computer processor that's capable to hold real-life brain information and eventually allow us to port ourselves into machines.
Think about the human brain, what do it do?
- It stores information
- It processes information
What does a CPU do?
- Processes information with a small cache
What does a hard drive do?
- Stores information
Combine the two into an interlocked spiderweb of transmissions. In order to achieve true "Variable Result Processing Unit", you must combine these two technologies in a 3D architecture.
Ill draw a simple diagram to illustrate this point. S = space, P = processor
/ | \
S,P S,P S,P
\ | /
Consider this the smallest node. Basically each piece of information, must also contain a processing unit. The idea is to achieve an almost instant output based on the path of least resistance.
Where we are currently. Binary Architecture <= This is wrong, a good start but wrong.
VARIABLE Architecture, who are we to say the only choices are yes/no on/off, the human brain works on yes/no/maybe
We have to change our way of thinking.
Think about it, the human brain operates on electronic impulses. You think those impulses are on/off? No, they are variable degrees of on/off.
Why does the human brain seem to have endless space?
Think about compression like a computer uses.
You can take a file that's is 100mb and reduce it to 10MB, why? Pattern match. Our brain does the same thing, this is how we get "deja vu".
"deja vu", Occurs when we see another object that is referenced by a pointer to an unknown object type, or 50%+ of the variables match an identical situation. It goes back to the old saying, glass half full/glass half empty. 50% is the mental barrier for the unknown. It gives us the sense, that this exact same thing may have happened.
Break it down to the smallest little thing.
For example, cups.
When you think about the item/object/word cups. what do you see?
Do you see a predefined single cup image? Or does a plethora of variable images of cups appear in your minds eye? This is because, it has been added to an array of objects in our mind. Every time this object is references it just supply's the pointer to this array.
Random Gibberish, with some truth. SkyNet is comming, beware.
Five, six, seven, eight!
*twirl, point, fold arms*
Give me a raise, loser!
In this analogy, wouldn't the brain actually be the motherboard?

The brain is more like the Internet than a computer IMO. The neurons are like servers that host webpages with links to other webpages and to off-site repositories for media (memories). And your brain activity consists of a bunch of perverts browsing for porn at the same time and you being the boss who only gets to see a small bit of it when you decide to watch over their shoulders.
Then when you watch those memories, the brain goes into CPU mode processing the equivalent of a Youtube feed, decompressing it on a more powerful computer. So basically a desktop computer with a whole lot of crappy virtual machines running webservers and a more powerful VM for the conscious part might be up for the task. No need to make non-binary computers and you shouldn't anyway since they would be more likely to fail.
