You only talk about statistics and forget about electronics

1. More pixels will deliver a lower 'net' sensor surface (because of
the circuitery) using the same technology.
2. You assume that the signal/noise ratio per pixel is independent of
pixel size, which is wrong ... google on 'noise floor will learn you
something more about it. If we would continue to make the pixels
smaller, we would arrive at a point were pictures would be a mere
'image' of noise signals.

Now what would your eyes and brain do with information like that?

Think very hard about what I just asked.
