I am certain that mind is not software. Brain is not hardware.

They are certainly useful metaphors to be sure. Weak AI theories are important to me. (strong AI theories creep me out)

And the science fiction built on these metaphors is pretty entertaining. But it's all to easy to imagine a medical-industrial establishment taking these metaphors literally, and performing unspeakable human rights violations in perfect ignorance.

The Dystopian stories that take that premise and run with it, I have not yet seen.
