Whilst looking through my hardcopy files for the Fahy article on the
feasibility of brain repair I found these diagrams on a "Merckle-Drexler
scenario" for a "Nanotechnology derived Cell Repair Device". The
source (which does contain the Fahy article, is an Alcor publication
See if you can see what's wrong with the picture.
Here's the device. http://www.entrepitec.com.au/page2A.html
Here's the device shown against a background with red blood
Here's the same device drawn approaching a synapse.
Hint. A red blood cell has a diametre of around 2000 to
A synaptic gap might be about 5 nanometres across. The lipid
membrane of a cell is about 6 nanometres.
Sadly, what seems possible to us when we are younger and
less knowledgeable *because* we are less knowledgeable does
not always remain possible.
