What I find wonderful about studying the computing machine, the laws of physics and information processing, is how much we can learn about ourselves, not the machines. Concepts of our self, self-reflection or introspection, and appreciation of beauty and human compassion at a deep fundamental level arise out of the many interacting components in our marvelous brain. Our brain forms an "imaginary" model of the world or universe we experience through sets of interacting and compartmented nerve cells. By imaginary, I mean by our imagination, which is the basis out of which we form the connections or associations in our brain. And this imaginary model is our creation, dependent on our "intent" to create it. This yields a sense of being, which is free.
