Along the same line as my last post: Consider that at that point we would
have the hard drive space (so to speak) to record a large number of data
points about the usual behavior of each neuron as we're studying it. That
data could later be used to retroactively try out resurrecting ourselves
with a different theoretical model that fits the data. Then we could
start up two different "me"s with the two different models in identical
simulations & observe how they diverge; fun!
