That looks so... dim. (But sadly, it sounds too true.) So I ask too: what to do next? Hack AI and... become "death, destroyer of worlds"? Or think about FAI without doing anything specific? And doing that not just using that "just for fun" curiosity, which is needed (or so it seems) for every big scientific discovery. (Or is it just me who thinks it that way?)

Anyway... Do we have any information about what the human brain is capable of without additional downloaded "software"? (Or has the co-evolution of the brain and the "software" played such an important role that certain parts of it need some "drivers" to be useful at all?)
