Symbol Grounding For AI

I've been doing a bit of reading lately about the symbol grounding problem.  Personally, I feel that this is possibly the greatest issue facing AI.  Decades of research has not come close to solving it.  I'm even starting to wonder if it could be a non-issue.  After all, how do humans ground symbols?  Neurons are simply on and off, like computers.  Granted, there are neuron spikes; the timing can count.  But how does that make it different from a computer at the lowest level?
