...i.e., once they know how to do low-level editing of memory in neurons
(equivalent to directly flipping the 1s and 0s in a computer file, using
a hex editor to try to reverse-engineer the pattern of said file), which
one could argue is rather simple to do given what they've done here
(though editing it in living brains would be, well, brain surgery)...
