The unexpressed fear of modularity
The young and uneducated white men on the internet opine on complex subject matter with a ferocity and arrogance that is only matched by the sheer size of their ignorance of the subjects.  In no topic is this mis-balance between arrogance and sheer wrongheadedness more apparent than in the topic of Artificial General Intelligence. 
euroscience has confirmed with experiment that the brains of primates and humans are highly modular. And not modular in data, but modular in function as well.  This functional modularity is a requirement due to wild variability in processing needed for different tasks in the real world.  The part of the human brain that perceives color categories in vision is performing processing that is quite alien to the part of the brain that handles the fine motor control of the fingers. (I choose this example because one task is perceptual, while the other is executive.)  This disparity in data and processing is conspicuously reflected in the structure of our brains.  Those differing functional modules are indeed segregated in space within our heads. 
The facts enumerated in this next paragraph send many a young intellectual scurrying for cover.  The human brain has massive interconnections between these functional modules.  In some cases  (such

Moody's Downgrades Italian Banks

Moody's Investors Service kicked off its long-awaited downgrades of European and global banks by docking the credit ratings of 26 Italian lenders, a move that could ratchet up the continent's banking woes at a critical time for the currency union.
The downgrades, which cite the banks' vulnerability to mounting loan defaults and potential funding problems, were expected, but they nonetheless add to concerns by making it more expensive for the banks to finance themselves via the capital markets.
The ratings for Italian banks are now among the lowest within advanced European countries, reflecting these banks' susceptibility to the adverse operating.

This is my response to a question I read elsewhere about the possibility of American media being dishonest/misleading or would
they /could they ever feed us propaganda or censor vital news in a modern technological age, where communication over great distances is nearly instant and video cameras are everywhere.. I
Well to answer that question, the fact is that the mainstream media here today is PRIMARILY fed propaganda and distraction. It has been this way for nearly a century.
To understand this thoroughly you must look at this story like most, from the beginning. In 1913 The Federal Reserve Act was passed (google it, the story is insane!). The passing of the (unconstitutional) Federal Reserve Act meant that the US Government will forfeit all rights to coin (or...
