Response to the brain is not a computer


you wrote that upon death "instantly massive neuronal damage begins". That is not true. The structure of the brain remains basically intact for hours, generally. Autolysis takes a toll over hours, and temperature affects the rate at which that toll is taken. But your statement is essentially incorrect.
