The brain is the brain. The computer is the computer.

I’m with ya there. it’s hard to get rid of that one, and _so many_ very wonderfully written, seemingly logical/rational things have been written through the years saying, “the brain is like a computer”… and it drives me nuts.

The brain came first.
The computer came second.

The computer was loosely based on an understanding of the brain.
The brain is the brain.
The computer is the computer.

If ANYTHING, the computer is like the brain. But… when I hear it the other way… and then all of these elaborate theories based on an analogy that has the order _backwards_… I just wanna shoot someone, but there’s too many targets tongue emoticon

So, I murmur and complain when I can smile emoticon
