Re: Foot, meet shotgun
Even the brain doesn’t do that. Childhood is much more interconnected than in adult brains but links get pruned, or should do. Synaesthesia results from a lack of normal pruning. Kids are naturally synaesthetic to some degree. Also have very low impulse control and are prone to tantrums.
The stability of adult brains points to a distributed node model. There are orders of magnitude more connections in a brain than in any server farm. There are issues with always on, system malfunctions leading to spurious errors (hallucinations) and even system death result from lack of appropriate downtime.
Silicon may avoid the downtime issue since it’s due to the need to take out the trash, metabolites being dumped into the cerebro-spinal fluid which then drains into the lymph none of which really applies to silicon.
Surely the internet architecture of nodes points the way to how to structure large server farms?
