The primary challenge stems from the need to simulate the human body's physiology, thinking, intuition, behavior & emotions into mathematical formulas.
The premise is that a mathematical simulation can express every biochemical or biophysical magnetic-electric process. The terminator in Arnold Schwarzenegger's films is a very "human cyborg." Creating such a cyborg requires deciphering many mental complex processes.
Our memories, physiology, emotions, behavior, thoughts, and subconscious are consequential and can be mathematically simulated.
The branch of biomathematics is in its infancy. Still, producing an intelligent cyborg that functions as a human being would be challenging without a mathematical translation of all human activities.
- 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 measurement because it is unclear how it works. (Substantial obstacle)
The biggest obstacle is the mathematical cracking of the processes in the human brain. Although not romantic, concepts like beauty and love, positive and negative emotions, and memories can have mathematical expressions.
- Despite much brain research development, most brain processes have not yet been mapped. Cyborgs must apply very complex mathematical laws to be "human." Otherwise, they will be "robots."
Precise simulation of all human body physiology, behavior, emotions, thoughts, and subconscious can open new unbelievable horizons!
- The number of processes in the human body is finite, 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!
The possibility of living 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 reached a perfect simulation of the human body, there is more plausible 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 many of modern physics' mysteries!
- The possibility that we live in a (very complex) computer simulation is not just the domain of science fiction movies. Quite fascinatingly, neither of the two claims can be proved: Humans have free will, and no power in the universe governs us. We live in a computer simulation. (Very complex)
