I can drop the word "physical" and go to "known to exist" - as opposed to an object moving faster than the speed of light which has never been observed and is assumed to be impossible.

From there I believe the only way to claim a human mind equivalent is impossible to create (as opposed to unlikely) through other means is by making a metaphysical claim - ie there are levers we do not have access to which are only accessible by an external actor.

you are the media you consume.

Predicted to be impossible. It's a consequence of the model, not an assumption of it.
