Too high! .001 bit/synapse would be closer to the mark, LOTS of redundancy.
See Science January 28 1994 page 466.
>0.5 Mbit/neuron, let's say 1 MBit/neuron (10^ 6 bit/neuron)
I would say 5 bits/neuron or less, that's bits not megabits.

10^11 or 10^12 bits.

Life is a feasibility proof, but as long as something does not violate the
laws of Physics I don't see why we need one, it's your responsibility to
prove it's impossible not mine to prove it's possible. Nobody has made an
airplane that weighs 1000 tons, the biggest is about 300. Would I have to
physically present you with the finished airplane to convince you it was

Absolutely, right now it's the only game in town, but if I didn't think
Nanotechnology would work I wouldn't waste my time with it.
