  1. This is obviously an incorrect statement, and you don't need to count anything to show it: neurons are made up of atoms, and each neuron consists of much more than one atom. Thus, in the human brain itself, there are obviously more atoms than neurons.�

    Well, as for the universe, in which there are so many brains alone, there is no need to talk.

  2. This statement is absolutely incorrect! Just because a neuron is a nerve cell that consists of hundreds of thousands of atoms. The conclusion is obvious – this “statement” is the result of a person's stupid self-praise.

  3. Nonsense, neurons are made up of atoms and even in the brain there are much more atoms than neurons, we are silent about the universe already.

    Now, if there were a question of how many neural connections, then yes, there may well be more than atoms, BUT in the human brain, and not how not about the universe.

    What would be an example:

    Neural connection is here for example there are numbers (1,2,3,4,5) There are only 5 neurons, and there will be 20 combinations, respectively, the more numbers, the greater the proportion.

  4. The statement is incorrectly written. I think it means “The number of combinations that the human brain can create is greater than the number of particles in our galaxy” and yes, this statement is true. After all, each neuron grows up to 1000 nerve connections with other neurons, and there are approximately 86 billion of them. Imagine if there are 43,252,003,274,489,860,000 combinations in a Rubik's cube with 56 colors, and there are more than 10^80 combinations in the human brain.

  5. Absolute nonsense. To fulfill this statement, it would require that the entire universe be a human brain made up of neurons smaller than atoms. And this is simply impossible.

  6. Are you serious? Neurons are made up of atoms. Suppose that each neuron consists of only one atom (which, of course, is not the case), then communication between neurons requires at least two atoms (although, in fact, much more). Even if we assume that all the atoms of the universe are concentrated in one brain (which is obviously also not true), the number of bonds will be less than the number of atoms. This is comparable in absurdity to the statement that the number of houses in a city is greater than the number of bricks from which they are built.

    There is a speculative claim that the number of neural connections in the human brain is approximately equal to the number of stars in the Milky Way, which can be taken plus/minus as fair.

    Critical thinking can help you.

  7. You have memorized the expression incorrectly.
    It was not about the number of neurons, but about the number of neural connections. What it is is another question. And there are really insanely many of them.

  8. Absolutely wrong! The number of neurons in the brain is finite, but the number of atoms in the universe is infinite. Hence the absurdity of this expression.

  9. Literally, this statement is grossly incorrect. But it is true that the number of different possible states of the human brain is much larger than the number of known elementary particles in the universe. However, this is not only in humans, but in any animal that has more than 400 neurons. The number of particles is estimated from above as 10 ^ 100 That is why we can model the universe by matching different brain states to different objects.

  10. Perhaps this means that the number of combinations of neural connections in the brain is greater than the number of atoms in the universe.
