The key thing is: “as long as” and “exact”. Strict standards there. Unless we reach the “as long as” “exact”, the foundational material remains relevant.

Hm, can’t forget about the inputs/outputs to the system. If they’re different, we’re different. Did you know that no two people hear exactly the same? We can’t; our ears are all shaped differently. For most practical purposes, it doesn’t make much difference, but, still a difference. I was born 1/2 deaf; more than – one ear is tinny and can’t hear anything and the other only goes up to 5000 hz. Yet, I have perfect pitch. I hear the world differently. My neuronal configuration was shaped by my inputs; it didn’t come out of thin air. Even a copy would be different if it had different ears and would be a different person, whether digital or analog. – but that leads more into another question Seedy Johnson posed again, which is still in my head.
