> "I don't think having a negative spin on having a buggy brain is the constructive approach."

I disagree. Having a "negative spin" is precisely what we need. We mostly do not even understand that we are stuck in a "Pink plane" (see Alan Kay videos for Pink|Blue plane definitions). Result: stagnation with more or less identical "paradigms" (see [1]) for more than 50 years (FORTRAN?).
