The Computer Mind. Humans have designed and programmed computers to function in much the same way as the human mind.
- We can think of external computer inputs such as the key-board, USB thumb drives and CD’s as being like the external information we put into our mind’s, through sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste etc.
- Inside the computer case or tower is the motherboard which contains the central processing unit (CPU). This is the computer mind which is much like our unconscious mind,. This is where our beliefs and behaviours run like computer programs, deep in the back ground somewhere. Our unconscious mind stores memories in time order, while some are deleted into the ‘trash’.
- The computer mind screen and speakers display information and learning which is stored in the CPU, just as in our deep unconscious mind.
