The task of the CPU is store bits at particular memory map locations.

The task of the neuron is to store holographic wavelet interference patterns
at particular memory map brain locations formed by reciprocal associative
weighted memory histories.  The correlational opponent processing results in
a fuzzy creative self organization causing unexpected answers.
