Comments on Brain Evolution
One could imagine a million experiments each using different mechanisms for evolving the artificial copy of the soul. The vast majority of these mechanisms (perhaps all of them) would not be the same as how our own brains and souls change, but all of these souls would evolve. Many, perhaps. would change in interesting ways. Some, perhaps. could change in more interesting ways than our own souls change.

You could use a genetic algorithm or something like it to cull and modify these mechanisms every few minutes.

What would be the ethics of such experiments on similar but not identical to human brains and souls?
