Yes, and it shows that there is nothing special about biology. It's
just a technical problem to find non-biological components that will
work as well as the biological ones. Over the next few decades, there
will be more and better neurological prostheses. Patients will tell
their doctor that they want one that allows them to feel exactly the
same as they did before they had the stroke, and manufacturers of the
devices will try to satisfy this demand. Ultimately, there will be
people walking around with half their head filled with electronics,
behaving perfectly normally in every respect. But you will presumably
still insist that this is an illusion.
