Brain Vs Computers

We were talking about the brain last week, and what
methods we could think of to study the brain and its
mechanisms. As we discussed, a lot of research has been able
to show us which parts of the brain are active during certain
activities, but not how those parts actually function.
Probably the most comprehensive idea we came up with was to
use computers to imitate the brain, to see if this would help
us to understand it better.

It is possible, in my opinion, that however our brain was
made (and I am not denying either Evolution or God), it was
formed intentially so that we should never understand how it
works. If we did know everything about the brain, then we
would also be able to manipulate it in many ways. This may be
seen as a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you
look at it. It could have serious moral implications, as we
could reach a stage where peoples' private thoughts were no
longer private, where thoughts could be manipulated, memories
could be erased, the possibilities are endless. Maybe humans
should stop being so arrogant that they think they can do

I think it can be cool to know the brain but it also can be bad in the sense that someone can manipulate you in many ways.

What do you think?

if that is only you that has that technology that is VERY GOOD! but if everyone has it that sucks!

i'm sure in a century or so they'll know everything about the brain, and will control it, the criminals brain memories will be erased and stuff, people will use brain control actively, and trust me the world will become one big machine, with no emotions
