Comparing Computer with the Brain
The language used to describe the brain is based on the structural or mechanical information processing paradigm. Since the olden times, this paradigm has been the computer and the hologram. Over the years, the man's way of thinking is quickly evolving as compared to a computer model because even it can rapidly process multiple streams of data.
According to the Western science has investigation most phenomena happens in a linear fashion dominated by the cause and effect. This viewpoint reveals the methodology behind the processing of a computer. The computers developed in the olden days used to deliver information in a serial method, meaning one bit after another.
Over the years, the time for hardware processing has increased drastically, even the flow of information was upgraded to a parallel distribution, which means multiple bits were delivered and processed simultaneously. The central processing unit (CPU) of a computer is considered to be the brain of the system. Since, it's responsible for everything that's going on internally and processes all of the incoming information, temporarily holds it in memory and then, upon request, redistributes the information where it needs to go.
One of the most promising alternatives available today is the quantum computer. The distinctive feature about a quantum system is that it exploits the conditions of superposition and entanglement, which are basically states of flux and coherence. Usually, a quantum systems can easily deal with numerous of information delivered simultaneously in a flexible way. This has become a new model for the brain as well as the new paradigm for the mind. As per the current estimates, the brain processes 400 billion bits of information in a normal waking state.
The holographic model of the brain, on the other hand, refers mainly to the storage of information. Researchers for many years, have been investigating the storage process of the brain. Studies reveal that information is mainly broken down into sections and each is stored in a different part of the brain. The brain has to get together ever piece of information into a coherent whole to recall the memory. Based on the analogy of the brain function, scientists now suggest that each stored memory segment actually contains the whole memory although it may not be as lucid as the whole memory.
Although, the current paradigm does not take into account or measure, the entire body as a memory storage device, but that may be changing. The nerve bundles that have been grouped together to form a plexus, provides a relay point between major neurological structures in the body. Studies indicate that they act as a sub-processing station for information as well as hold memory at a cellular level.
