Geek stuff, sci-fi... Geek is defined by as 'A person who is single-minded or accomplished in a scientific or technical pursuit'. Many of us either acknowledge ourselves as computer geeks or are labeled by Friends, Family, and/or Colleagues as the such. This is not a condescending statement and should not be taken in a negative connotative way. It is in fact an admiration of our technical skills and abilities.

The human brain operates at a frequency from a few hertz to a few tens of hertz. I don't know what petahertz are you talking about here. Despite that slow speed, we are massively parallel, because all neurons work simultaneously.
