No it isn't, it's just not technically true that we have proven our model beyond all doubt by creating an emulation that does exactly the same thing. Yet. We have a model. There are synapses. They fire when they reach a voltage threshold. Signals are all or nothing. They travel at speeds much less than lightspeed, limited by retransmission nodes. Each synapse has a weight and either adds or subtracts from that voltage level. Some synapses are connected to glands that can emit something that goes brain-wide and affects all the synapses of a specific type.

Everything here is straightforward to emulate, you just need to use a computer with sufficient memory and bandwidth to that memory to even remotely approach realtime speeds. And you need a scan of all the synapses, which is very expensive to get.
