winning and losing

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

in some religions its taught that winning and loosing must be treated the same.so that neither causes any emotion.is this honestly acheivable even playing chess against a computer i dont like it when i loose.shows how the ego wont let go easy.can it be done.

Probably not when it comes to humans. Nil emotion is easily achievable by a computer. You can programme a computer to be emotional when it loses a chess game, but in the end it is only an act. The computer is actually emotional when it comes to losing

Not 'spooky' at all its anthropomorphism. Chess grand masters suffer from this as well.
