Good luck. I agree with your point: Engineering first, then science.
Here there is a big question whether an engineer has free will (is an
engineer different in this respect from a scientist?). In other words,
whether the M-theory has already determined all actions of engineers or
engineering allows us to find out whether the M-theory is correct.
But you must know it's not as simple as "tissue" implying some
undifferentiated stuff. Even planaria have a wiring diagram, so to
get AGI you probably need to start with the right wiring diagram. And
if it is right it will still take a long time to educate it.
