#News: Neuromorphic Artifical Neurons Created by IBM, and #robot #scifi implications

Earlier had posted about how artificial axons had been developed, which are much smaller and more efficient than biological axons[1], though in it I mentioned how still needed a neuron body — now IBM has done it[2].

The new neuron bodies are also 10 times smaller than water-based neurons, and may be scaled down to 100 times smaller.

The most critical aspect for creating incarnation worthy host bodies is that they are stochastic, meaning that they are prone to change due to background radiation, or are sensitive to the “randomness” of the universe.  This means that a soul or mind-stream can manipulate the thought process of the brain, such as giving it certain preferences or helping with wiring of previously known skills (talents).

Of course, any new computation medium will require some adaptation on behalf of the inhabiting mind-streams, so it may take some time of many compatible computational mediums before a signficant population of mind-streams adept at manipulating them develop.

As mentioned in the linked article [2], developing the software to take advantage of it will be one of the most difficult parts.  Though there is another aspect, which is the axons, that have to either; have to form after production like in water-based brains(unlikely) or be put in place linking many of the neuron bodies at chip printing time with some kind of software pruning/setting similar to FPGA’s (most likely).

Certainly there is still a long ways to go, but this is one of those critical technologies that vastly helps the soul-body connection for incarnation purposes. Another technology that while less critical would still be very good for soul-body connection is an artificial pineal gland, with it’s associated cones and rods.
