As wiki definition, cognition is a group of mental processes that includes attention, memory, producing and understanding language, learning, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making.
Here we can group it to three...
- Information Gathering.
- Information Storing.
All the three stages depend on physical and genetical capability of the person. Hormonal behaviour of the persons affects heavily Information Processing and to an extend on Information Gathering. As the three factors varies for each person, the three process also varies.
Information is stored in the memory as a highly complex relational database along with the logic of relating the data. When we think the logic of compiling the relational data may be pre-compiled or be combination of partly compiled logics. While processing or storing of compiled data it may depend on your three factors, similar previous reactions (reasoning), present emotional mood(hormonal).
So in case of Mind uploading what are u going to upload...... Data, logic,...???
- Data without logic is junk........!!!
- Data and logic without matched surroundings is again junk (identity crisis).
- How can we selectively extract required data from the actual data.
With present technology on my belief only we can check the neurological impulses of a human reaction.
In conclusion in present science isn't it an unrealistic methodology.......???
