I was not refering to the learning ability of the Sasquatch. A human Mage is

If you use the Rules of VRI, a Human with a decent Magic Attribute will never
deck even remotely well.

real world that interferes with the Sim-World in the Matrix
A dual being has the same means as a Mage to percieve the real world, so...
