Ack! :-) You continue to flatly misunderstand. Blue Gene does not
simulate the functionality of a cortical column, because that
functionality is not known at the present time. It tries to simulate
the functionality at around the neuron/synapse level.

No! But only because it is proprietary. And I think this request was
based on the same misunderstanding I just explained, so if you saw the
model you would not know it for what it was. You seem to think that
you would get from me a model at the neural level. That is not the
case, because I am modeling (what I believe to be) the functionality.

What is the point arguing? You are not getting the point I am trying to
make, no matter how hard I try.
