### The number of possible human genomes is vastly lower than 2e(2 * 3.2
billion) - most of the permutations of bases that are 3.2 billion long do
not code for anything at all, then are untold gazillions of genomes that
code for non-human organisms and only an infinitesimal fraction codes for

On the other hand, the complexity of the brain, even a fetal brain, is
again vastly greater than the complexity of the genome - there are hundreds
of billions of specific neural connections that are not directly coded by
genes and are formed in a stochastic fashion under only indirect, general
genetic control, even before any meaningful learning takes place.
