FleshFactor: epistemological tails

A computer program that accurately modeled the human brain might be as
inscrutable to us as the brain itself. Trying to know themselves,
superintelligent machines, would have to become still more complicated; 
they would thus be caught in a spiral of ever-increasing complexity,
chasing their own tails for all eternity. 

The only hope humans have of comprehending their own complexity may be to
cease being human. Anybody who has the motivation or talent will be able
in effect to merge with these big software systems.
