        Last year you proposed to use long coherence length
x-rays to scan brains with nanometer resolution.  I believe you
also said that the only sources of such x-rays were nuclear devices.
        Now you are proposing to use interferometry of sound and
radio radio waves to scan brains with with nanometer resolution,
and say that you cannot find money for this work because it is only
of interest to the small cryonics and uploading community.
        I have news for you: Brain scanning (even at 1mm resolution)
is a multi-billion dollar industry.  If the devices you are proposing
are possible, you should have no trouble getting research grants from 
Siemens, Philips, General Electric, or any of dozens of other medical 
imaging companies.  Why don't you post your messages to sci.med.physics?
Come back and talk to us after you build your device, revolutionize
radiology, and win your Nobel Prizes in physics and medicine.

        Wonderful.  Why worry about uploading at all then?
