To whom are you referring to? There doesn't seem to be anyone in this thread who would fit into a "freudian type". Freud was a brilliant young man,
turned crackpot, incestuous coke-head. I wonder, do you prefer the psycho-babel of Jung over Freud? Not sure how much you read of his work. He never
had a stable theory of basically anything. From one year to the next, the ideas continued to jumble around. Brilliant man, as well, but a bit too all
over the place for my liking as I matured.
The reason why it's logical to speak of the brain as a computer, is because it can be synthesized by one. We're already doing that with success, but
the processing power required is out of our reach for real time of mammals. The decades to come will see a fully synthesized, working model of the
brain in real time.
As for the "soul". it's a fun concept but quite ignorant. Once you're educated enough, the notion of the "soul" gets seen for what it is, a delusion.
You don't have to be a military commander type to realize this. I still have a deep appreciation for human nature
and the human
, but realize even these are not set in stone, and not only subject to change, but inevitably will as the terrain does.
Furthermore, "rewiring" is a reality that need not leave such a sour taste in the mouth of viewing members. It's simply a natural ability that complex
beings have, as an adaptive process. That it may not fit into your notion of what a "soul" may be, simply shows that the belief is not sound.
