S1s can already fit in a human-like body. They could even fit into a large dog. They tend to be more spread about because of how limiting one body is. S2s are much larger, but can improve size with higher toposophic technology. And of course they can also be split over/directly remote control a myriad of bodies.
My impression, from reading about S1 brain size, was that fitting it into a human frame required a denser matrix than human neural tissue was capable of; typically one that is clearly artificial. The SNARE users can be human scale because their brains are basically diamondoid processor where their biological brains used to be. The Athena are a tad larger than baseline, but use a "brain" that is biological, but not directly comparable to human neural tissue. Further, the Athena brain is bolstered by a fair amount of compubone in the skull and upper spine. Other articles, either currently or historically, mention ultimate chips as a component in miniaturizing a nearhu intelligence to fit into a significantly smaller body. I recall, vaguely, that being the case for the parrots, and more recently and with greater certainty, the article on the laundry. I haven't read the article on the parrots in several...months?,years?, so I can't say for certainty that my memory is accurate, nor do I have any idea whether or not it is still the article I remember reading.
