Can you or anyone explain how what the neurons are doing is "calculus"?

Calculus is how we scientifically communicate nature to each other, not away for nature to implement mathematics. Flies are not doing calculus any more than you catching a thrown ball is doing calculus. This headline, and perhaps the grant proposal, is written for stupid people. I hope this explains it for you.

I have yet to go to a coffee shop or pub without free and unlimited WiFi access (keep in mind I never go to starbucks). Either they drop the $50 or so to get an access point or ask the Personal Telco Project ( to hook them up at no cost. And then there's the MetroFi free network ( if you're really desperate. I'm sure there's ways you could spend money for WiFi access but I can't imagine why anyone would.
