[ExI] 1 mm^3 of brain

I have not had time for a close look yet, but I thought you guys would 
appreciate this:


"A team led by scientists from Harvard and Google has created a 3D, 
nanoscale-resolution map of a single cubic millimeter of the human 
brain. Although the map covers just a fraction of the organ—a whole 
brain is a million times larger—that piece contains roughly 57,000 
cells, about 230 millimeters of blood vessels, and nearly 150 million 
synapses. It is currently the highest-resolution picture of the human 
brain ever created."

That is some crazy resolution, but how much resolution constitutes 
functional isomorphism? Are rational numbers sufficient to preserve 
identity or are real numbers required?
