It might be possible to design a learning system which can understand two brains' thoughts and memories, and, just like a version control system, merge them. In the best case, it would produce the least amount of duplication and stronger, but fewer connections. In combination with the ability to reproduce completely a brain state, this would allow for easy temporary idea transference.
We would have to understand the machinery and uses of all the different types of glial cells and their effects on neurons and the brain's neural networks. That's no easy feat, but certainly possible. It'll just take time.
Of course, this learning system will be a bitch to get just right. But that's okay, because it's a learning system, and we have forever. And then of course reproducing a brain state is an extremely fucking complex and difficult task. But certainly possible.
It's all possible in my lifetime. Let's figure it out.
