You assume here uploading on the most primitive neural network. It is as 
saying that a rocket can't go to the Moon because the cardboard from the body 
could not withstand the load of a supersonic flight.

Neuron simulation for uploading will take care of every biochemical 

peculiarity and the full system will have not a fixed number of neurons or links

between them. The most promisig system are not computers, they are FPGA. With 
links and neuron number or properties can shift thousands time a second.
