I have a question. Will we be able to build a neural network that thinks abstractly, has the creativity, feels and is conscious?

Maybe in the distant future they could build a computer powerful enough to simulate the individual neurons of an entire human brain. Then they could carefully copy/paste the connectivity of a sample brain into the computer simulation.

Given that this extreme seems physically possible, it stands to reason that much simpler/smaller alternatives could be engineered in the future assuming continuous advancements in technology.
