We are just extremely primitive in terms of understanding the biochemistry of the brain and how it operates. And we are even further from accurately
replicating such advanced technology.
You call me the Neanderthal but yet here we are, in the cave man ages were we aren't even living on moon bases or anything yet. Trapped on Earth

psychology actually works from a true physicist perspective.
