Considering the enormous capacity, complexity, manipulability and craftiness of our brain networks, I hypothesize that the brain has purposely given us reigns to make “us” aware only about the functionality of this "limited sector" of the thinking process. Because of this unreasonable victimization of "us", by our own brains, I believe we can’t perceive what else is happening in the brain when a thinking process is happening.

Are we being fooled by our brains?

Our brain is the grandest biological frothier and most complex thing in the universe. The complex architecture of how it's billions of cells communicate each other has baffled the greatest minds for centuries. Understanding the brain function is one of the ambitious tasks pursued by leading neurologists in many countries. The new technologies that have immerged in the recent past have made pathways to understand the brain's operation and its connections in ever greater detail.

Just after the telephone exchanges came to existence, people tried to emulate brain to a telephone exchange, as it was the most sophisticated instrument existed at that time. Now we try to use the computer for the same purpose. These comparisons have been and will be mere attempts to explain how the brain functions. I feel these emulations wouldn't make any justice to the brain, considering its vast data processing capability and mere operating complexity. The moment we find something more sophisticated the computer will have the same fate that the telephone exchanger had in respect of emulating the brain.

After stating all the above, I too have used the computer to explain some
