TONY: I think perhaps this discussion could use a dose of computing knowledge.

DHW Although as usual the vocabulary is foreign to me, I love the intricacies of the argument. In my terms it all means that there is no such thing as a soul, and all organisms consist solely of materials, but these are individually “wired” to give us our individual personalities.

Erm, not really. Saying that the body is a machine does not preclude there being a user(soul). Rather, my point was that the unique capabilities of the machine would directly effect what information was available to the soul and how it is presented to the soul, thus altering how the soul responds.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
