I fully agree.

Again, I agree.

My opinion is that the "other" (and maybe only?) way to think of 
the two of them is to focus on the fact that they both move from 
the same essence, the mind! 
This regardless of the methodology the two communities might want
or need to use.

Oahu! This might take me ages! :^\
Though, on the other hand, all of my artistic production is oriented in that
Like, for example, in the Atificial Painter (1994) where I leave a natural
brain to evolve the "TAC" of an artificial brain (Neural Network). 
Or like in the "LifeGrabber"
(http://www.artificialia.com/LifeGrabber/english.html 2003), where I show
the famous 24 frames per second simultaneously and/or desynchronizing and/or
emphasizing the colours and dimensions accordingly with sound inputs..
Or, for example, in "Perception" (2005) where I draw images coming from a
camera by filtering them with their correspondent, run time, sound waves
(therefore trying to simulate what might happens at the cortical or
pre-cortical level in the real brain).
Does it help?
