Aided human brains

Lord Martin Rees, president of the Royal Society, has said that understanding how the universe works may not be possible "for unaided human brains."  I agree.  That's one reason we're building AIs.  Some of the first computing machinery was built to help do research in quantum mechanics.  Most simple math has been pushed out of our heads and off scratch paper and into pocket calculators.
