  You're probably right.

  People can make any guess they want.  It's their prerogative.  There
is a difference between not ready and not working right.

  Ah.  Are you saying that the others would be disappointed?  It sure
seems like it.

  You can't patent natural processes IMO.  At least you should not be
able to.  My thesis is that biological neurons will be found to work
pretty much like the neuron model that I propose in the article at my
site.  Besides, if this leads to something big, there will be enough
for everyone.  I'm not greedy.
