Q: If we invented a computer that was so smart no human could understand it, and it had a theory of physics none of us could understand, but its predictions were correct, would the theory be true.
A: Sure. If we had a computer which had our current theory which we know to be true, and there was a neurological plague the result of which that no human being could understand the theory any more, it would not stop being true.
Q: But that’s upsetting!
A: Well what we should do in that case is try to use the computer to re-engineer our brains so we become smart enough to understand the true theory.
Q: But wouldn’t that cause us to stop being human.
A:No, human beings are beings for whom their being matters for them. It doesn’t require being dumb.
