Any fool can see that with enough elements one could make a brain
out of non-biological materials.  But how many would you need?  That 
is, how many neurons are in the (typical) human brain?  We have an old
biology book that says *at least* 100 billion but I'll bet there are more.
And how many connections do they each have?  Of course, this is basic
AI stuff but I'm too lazy to go to the library.  Pls send reply to
