Axon A Leaky Garden Hose

a: Axon ~
b: soaker garden hose

What: This discussion occurs on page 42 of the linked book "The accidental mind" It is a discussion comparing copper conductivity and axon conductivity. The point being, an axon compared with copper wire is a poor conductor. Copper moves electrons like a pipe moves water, fast with no leaking. Axons move current like the above mentioned garden hose.
