Well i believe that our brain is a microcomputer having a very well defined system to analyse and specify to the demands of our body to every need. But this wonderful computer has no chips or bits What do you say?

I think our brain is more better than the computer. That's because humans are the ones that have created computers and so, our brains are much more cleverer than that. But I suppose our brains work more faster than the microcomputer..

If you don't mind, I think I would mix some spiritual stuff in my response. To be honest, computer is one of the reasons why I still believe in the existence of a Creator - in this case, God. I realized that when I was playing a PC game called The Sims. It makes a lot of sense to me that perhaps we are "the sims" of a higher being. Computer, as we all know is very complicated especially the nature of microchips. But I do believe that our brain is much more complicated than these chips. I just sense that perhaps there is someone who programmed our brain in order for it to work. It's hard for me to believe that our brain existed by accident as much as I find it hard to believe that a computer software worked without a programmer.
