“So being hard-wired may not be that big a deal. ”

That’s a great point Ray. The brain has a structure of neurons and sunapses, that we could call its “hard wires”. But there are:

“Homo sapiens: (For average adult)
"The human cerebral cortex, with an average 1233 g and 16 billion neurons, is slightly below expectations for a primate brain of 1.5 kg, while the human cerebellum, at 154 g and 69 billion neurons, matches or even slightly exceeds the expected". See [en.m.wikipedia.org]

So many neurons and synapses and their processing of our experience so complex, that the truth is that the hard wiring seems less important than how we use it. So I agree with you.

PS: Sorry for using Wiki, but there is so much on this topic I went for the forest rather than the trees!
