This work reflects a certain point of view about artificial intelligence. The text shows a scientific view and a cutout of the Terminator 2 filmscript.
In theory, the human brain can be simulated by a CPU. Supposing the memory is large enough and the necessary algorithms are known. If human consciousness is based on natural law known to us, it will be possible to interpret and calculate it. Emotions are controlled by hormones and experience correlating to existing sensor technology and algorithms. Future processors are designed for new patterns, e.g. based on DNA. The reproduction by the machine itself is possible. The soul is a religious view and is thus irrelevant.

Sarah: Doesn’t want you thinking too much, huh?
John: Can we reset the switch?
