"The calendar could be that: First ocultation observing in 3 years, then 5
years to produce 100 instruments in the 2 m class. In 2010 the first i-cube
would be running at full power and all the elements would be at hand to make
a phonon system. On the other hand, a small group with some money could
target directly the end system and build a phonon brain reader in two or
three years. Can anyone do that?"

The astronomical work sounds facinating, to be sure, but aside from a bit of
practice at making a working interferometer, I'm unclear as to how it places
in your hands all the elements to make a phonon brain reader. All the
principles may be transferable, and some of the skills, maybe even some
electronics and software, but you're hardly going to be able to use 2 meter
optical telescopes to do phonon interferometery of a brain.

What am I missing here?
