As I recall from high-scool biology, some axons are 0.02 mkm wide and only 1-2 mkm long (inerneuron axons), but others are to 0.1 mkm wide and many yards long (motor and sensory axons) And variety in between. So mass of them can be easily calculated to be in extremely wide range - from 10^-15 gram to 10^-7 gram. And there are more than 10^12 of axons in human body. So which one's mass is the mass of human soul?
