@30: you say we should “replicate the pieces in software, replicate the chemicals in software.”

I’ll get on with writing a completely accurate ab-initio quantum molecular dynamics program that handles around 10^26 atoms and runs in faster than real-time, you get on with obtaining the location of every atom in a human body (got to get the initial conditions right), and we should have that done by teatime, right?
