Well hey, we already know that every neuron is a super-computer. You know, vibrating quantum shit and whatever. Pitts-McCulloch is _so_ 1943. We've just got to find the neuron with the little homunculus-guy inside and we're all set.

But anyway - can't talk now. My C program is misbehaving. I've got to take my PC apart with an electron microscope to figure out what's gone wrong.
