The primary challenge in developing cyborgs stems from the need to simulate the human body's physiology, behavior & emotions into mathematical formulas.

The premise is that a mathematical simulation can express every biochemical or biophysical, magnetic-electric process. In Arnold Schwarzenegger's films, the terminator is a very "human-cyborg." Creating such a cyborg requires deciphering many mental complex processes.


Our body never functions randomly. Therefore, our memories, physiology, emotions, and behavior is consequential and can be mathematically simulated.

The branch of biomathematics is in its infancy. Still, without a mathematical translation of human physiology, it would be challenging to produce a smart cyborg that functions as a human being.

  • Three forces drive human physiology: Biochemical processes, electrical- magnetic processes, and mental-energetic processes.
  • The laws of chemistry and physics are well known; everyone has a mathematical expression. But the psychic-energetic dimension does not have an exact mathematical dimension because it is not clear how it works. (Substantial obstacle)

The biggest obstacle is the mathematical cracking of the processes in the human brain. Although it is not romantic, concepts like beauty and love, positive and negative emotions, memories can have mathematical expressions. 

  • Despite much development in brain research, most processes in the brain have not yet been mapped. Cyborg will have to apply very complex mathematical laws to be "human." Otherwise, they will be a "robot."

Precise simulation of all human body physiology, behavior, and emotions can open new unbelievable horizons!

  • The amount of processes in the human body is a finite number, which changes from time to time but will allow for a complete computer simulation. Quite similar to what you see in science fiction movies.
  • If we fully control the simulation of all physiological-emotional processes, it will be possible to cure any disease and even prevent aging!


This scenario seems to come from science fiction movies, but it is probably applicable over several decades. Now we have to crack the mathematical simulation of our body!


The possibility that we live in a computer simulation has appeared in several well-known films such as The Matrix and Jumanji.

  • This is where the story begins to become much more exciting and complicated. If we have managed to reach a perfect simulation of the human body, there is a more plausible possibility that we, too, live in a complete simulation. Still, even well-known physicists do not rule out this possibility. It is precisely the possibility that we live in a simulation that solves much of the mysteries of modern physics!
