### This and other similar methods are the second coolest thing happening
this millennium so far. Chemopreservation of the human brain, followed by
staining, clearing and thick-slice optic scanning might produce an upload
file much easier than electron microscopy based methods, if the neural dust
idea does not pan out.

Alternatively, neural dust interface analysis could be done first, followed
by destructive scanning. The two sources of information would mutually
constrain the space of solutions in the resulting model of the mind, thus
significantly reducing information loss and computational overhead.
