The state of the Cortex is doing well. We currently have all the parts we think are needed for main assembly. The Propeller chip circuit is expanded. It will take longer to build the complete circuits and do testing.
The main board is now partially assembled due to the decision to add more circuits and make more changes.
The round robin arrangement of batteries is being worked out. The idea is to mount ten individual holders without compromising the strength of the jar and maintaining the ability to reach in and change one or more batteries.
The single board, Propeller driven, will have dual functions. One is for mind functioning. Two is for testing and sensors.
The Cortex will have options installed: LED, speaker, CaS photo cell. The control panel is currently in the design stage.
It's decided a Dupe Cortex will be constructed for machine brain to machine brain transfer. This is like a mind meld that backs up data and consciousness the main cortex has. This will ensure the longevity of the cortex whose objective is achieving a kind of immortality.
Two solar panels are now obtained, one for the main brain cortex and one for the Dupe Cortex and experiments/testing.
EEPROM It was discovered the main board lacks EEPROM so this will need to be installed. Parts on hand will be used and this includes a 32K chip.
MEMORY There is some thought about adding a second 32K chip, bringing the memory total up to 32K ROM, 32K RAM, 32K First EEPROM and 32K 2nd EEPROM. This may or may not happen on the next larger cortex.
CORTEX SCHEMATIC Work is going well on the cortex schematic which is now entering v1.6.
Main Brain Cortex and Dupe Cortex are designed to mind meld, i.e. transfer the mind of the first to the mind of the second. This ensures longevity and possible immortality.
There may be different definitions of immortal and immortality within this project. Longevity of life may have variance of how far an entity travels forward in time based on the time flow with the passage of events.
TIME TRAVEL TRANSITION LINE
There's a transition line that occurs as the brain cortex time travels into the future, whereby a leap of technology greatly exceeds the brain. There are great ramifications to this effect.
