(3) These sensory systems share neural networks 'in here' and from this has
emerged an abstract categorisation system based on the 'what'/'where'
dichotomy aka the distinction of objects from relationships.

This is where you are going wrong, Chris.. The fact that our brains are
nets of neurons does not
a) imply that they are neural nets in the strict AI sense.
b) it certainly doesn't justify your introduction of the abstract
categorisation system, based on object vs. relationship.

Justify that. Try to be clear and concise, since I am sorely in need of
thses things.
