Just like its impossible to find a place between London and Paris because of QM and the periodic table?

The point here is that, as far as i know, we don't know how the brain stores any particular peice of information at this moment. If we have more than models, for example an archeology of stored bits of someones 'information' in their brain, then I'd be interested.
