How much modelling was required to sequence DNA? It was done in 2 years.
Then brain is not mush more complex. The connections are larger than DNA
nodes, hence easier to map. In practice all you hace to do is X-ray it slice
by slice, then construct its computer model and record all connections. Easy
as 1 2 3. then run a simple program on all 30 billion computers and have
them self connect in the same way.
