We are computers.
Advanced, complex, evolved computers with programs that learn and interpret. Well oiled machines that have functioned pretty well for the past 10,000 years or so. Its hard to think of a human or a being of any sort as a machine but if we look at the constituent parts its hard not to make the comparison. Or bodies are organized so that no one part has to preform every task necessary to its survival but rather every part contributes something to the larger function of our bodies in the world, no matter what it is.
Every function of our brains is part of a complex, ever changing program. As we ask more and more questions about ourselves we begin to understand overreaching concepts as to how our brains function, how we react to certain familiar situations, how we feel towards certain types of people, what makes us laugh. As we grow older we begin to know our own program as realize how it came to be the way it is today. Despite its arcane complexity the human brain still is a program and one that can be deciphered. There is a program for love, hate, jealousy, joy, faith, and laziness waiting to be deciphered.
Humans with all their ingenuity cannot be blamed for not deciphering millions of years of evolution, but with the constant exponential expansion of the world’s knowledge base we cannot deny that we will eventually figure out the intricacies of the human being. The knowledge is out there somewhere, the secret lies hidden somewhere, and it begins with one person’s need to find out more.
