Human beings are constructors. We have survived and developed through the use of tools and machines. This makes it difficult to understand our own brain from a different perspective. We want to understand humans as a car constructed with different functional parts, or as a computer program with neatly defined functions that are executed in a predetermined order. Not as a lump of fatty tissue that bombards itself with electrochemical energy in complex and seemingly random patterns, where somewhere in the voids between the energy waves, something as intangible as consciousness could have emerged.
