no, your computer is a brain

In Gary Marcus’ article he does a good job of descrbing a “modern” computer, and discrediting “scientist” for their inexcusable ignorance of this computer.  And of course, he wants to compare the human brain to a computer.

But an alternative view has existed for thousands of years: the computer is definitely a brain.

That is, ever since the Torah proclaimed that G-d created Man in His own image, we have found it an essential revelation that all human creations, including G_d, are revelations of the true inner human creation.  In other words, we unwittingly recreate ourselves, and, if we are smart, can decompose ourselves by decomposing our creations.
