"It took 40 minutes with the combined muscle of 82,944 processors in K computer to get just 1 second of biological brain processing time. While running, the simulation ate up about 1PB of system memory"

82,944x40x60=~200,000,000, which is about 2^27,5.

In other words, 27,5 Moore's Law iterations to have the simulation real-time.

That's 41 years...

2056. I expect to still be alive then, in my early 80s, barring the wars for oil reaching Norway (it could happen...).

I wonder, have you ever heard of the Dunning-Kruger Effect? You strike me as a near-perfect example; having read a good few of your comments, I'm not at all surprised that you'd qualify for Mensa membership - and, unsurprisingly, that you'd try to D-K out of it. In other words: Suck it up, m8, you're up for Mensa.

Surveillance is you censoring yourself

No, surveillance is someone else checking what you said last week, and then storing the information indefinitely.

Censorship is the state asking you nicely to censor yourself

No, censorship is someone else checking what you said last week, and then punishing you for it.
