"Any process can be replaced by a sufficiently-large lookup table with the right elements."

That misses my point. A process is needed to do the look-ups or the table just sits there.

If you abstract away the low-level details of how neurons work, couldn't the brain be considered a very large, multidimensional look-up table with a few rules regarding linkages and how to modify strengths of connections?
