I know, I really should start to think of how to do gamma ray diffraction
from inside a synapse, the necessary energy output to get a decent signal
to noise ratio, as well as calculate how many megatons of energy this
uploading approach is going to release. (Talk about going to the future in
style! Leaving by a CTC inside a nuclear/gravitic fireball!)

But before we know how to upload well, I think uploading by wormhole will
remain an area where the handwaving frequency reaches the ultrasonic
