In Caprica, the spin-off series from Battlestar Galactica, a central plot point is the Metacognitive Processor (MCP). It's seemingly required to get the virtual Zoe in to a robot.

However, the virtual Zoe is already fully functional in v-world, which runs on standard computing hardware, without an MCP.

So why is the MCP required to get Zoe in to a Cylon robot?

If one was to randomly speculate, perhaps the MCP packs a lot of punch for the size? It could be that the v-world mainframe storing her is huge and you couldn't shove enough standard processing power into a human size body along with all the mechanical stuff? –  Zoredache Oct 4 '13 at 6:19
