Yes. This "enough storage" is the key.
And very likely, a MB would suffice.
The time component - how fast emulation, relatively to the current one we
can achieve with a today's PC?
I guess at least 1/1000 we should be able to. Maybe even more.
It's another matter if we are smart enough to perform these emulations in a
short time span.
But eventually, it's pretty much inescapable road to go.
No "irreducible complexity" or "spirituality" spells can prevent it.
