"and then a singularity happens"

So you've taken that first step on the way to Jupiter Brain status:
you've converted your brain to software or nano-neurons, or perhaps
merely transferred it to a bigger `skull' (vat?) with room to grow.

Er, what next? I've seen little if any writing on this. You can't
simply reenact your childhood growth, because that growth was directed
toward a specific design: the one you're trying to transcend.

Do you add neurons at random, hoping that they'll arrange themselves
usefully without costing too much in noise?
