"more Realistic" or ... ?

".... are also consistent with ... needing a properly disposed material brain to express its powers"

Yep. And the differences between the two stories seems to hinge on whether a "a better or more Realistic story might work better for them". And perhaps particularly on whether "more Realistic" is the same as "better." Which, of course, raises some interesting problems about how we decide what is "more Realistic." Besides, maybe "more Realistic" is sometimes less important?
