    Deep deep in Neuron Nexus we walked, hand in hand, within the edutainment theme park Brainsworld.

    The old textbooks emphasized that a neuron forms a network with other neurons. Why? To transmit messages through rapid electrochemical signals that cross connections called SYNAPSES.

    That was then. This is now, this, that we walk through and between. That green one? Astrocyte. Structural support, distributes oxygen and nutrients.

    Those blue things – Oligodendrocytes, insulating axons with myelin,

    Wikipedia starts: “Myelin is a fatty white substance that surrounds the axon of some nerve cells, forming an electrically insulating layer. It is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. It is an outgrowth of a type of glial cell. The production of the myelin sheath is called myelination or myelinogenesis.”

    If you screw up an oligodendrocyte, the bad news is demyelation, as seen in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and the better known Multiple Sclerosis.

    I had a two-tone chocolate-coffee frozen yoghurt swirl on a Clone-Cone. I grinned as the colored lights flashed in the giant model microglia. They prune excess synapses in neuron systems under development. They clean away molecular detritus, like folks in Rose City, Texas, throwing out mattresses, drywall, rugs, childrens toys...

    During an infection, Microglia combat pathogens invading. Unfortunately, microglia cn also prune perfectly functional synapses, and – boom! – neurodegenerative disease.

    Such as I had, barely kept in check with AI-doctors, The Treatment, and gene eciting.

    Or else I'd have died years ago.

    .My name is Barnie-Q. Meaning that I am a female reproductive clone, a barbie, and tht I have Quantum Computing neuroprosthetics.

    That's two steps away from Human 1.0.

    Great power comes with a very steep price tag.
