>I imagine this is the way we get to "true AI", or AI indistinguishable from our own. We train it with a simple virtual environment, that we can gradually increase the complexity of, until it mimics our own. Then we can download the AI into a robot. Boom, it's that easy :P

Maybe, but I think this is the wrong approach, it's the engineering approach. It will work, but to a limmited degree. What would be more interesting is to find a way for a NN to completely internalise the process, this seems quite natural if you do a little introspection... we improve by "thinking" what if thinking what we are really talking about, the process of improvement by internal simulation. It doesn't have to be a realistic simulation, it just has to be relevant.
