BRAINS ARE ORGANIC HARDWARE SYSTEMS COMPOSED OF NERVE CELLS (CALLED NEURONS) WHICH PARTICULARLY DISTINGUISH THEMSELVES FROM OTHER CELLS BECAUSE THEY HAVE AN OUTSPOKEN ABILITY TO STORE INFORMATION . THEY ARE GROUPED IN CLUSTERS WHICH ARE INTERCONNECTED BY PATHWAYS (CALLED AXONS AND DENDRITES) . THE HUMAN BRAIN SYSTEM IS COMPOSED OF SOME 100 BILLION NEURONS INTERCONNECTED BY SOME 70 TRILLION PATHWAYS. OUT OF THIS MICRO COSMOS MIRACULOUSLY "EMERGES" ONE SINGLE SOFTWARE SYSTEM WHICH IS THE HUMAN MIND.

THE HUMAN MIND PARTLY DEVELOPS THROUGH LEARNING OF WHICH ONE VERY IMPORTANT FORM IS CALLED CONDITIONING . THIS IS A FORM OF LEARNING WHERE AN ORGANIC MEMORY SYSTEM (WHICH COULD BE A SINGLE PROTO PLASMATIC CELL, (BUT ALSO A HUMAN BRAIN) STORES MEMORY TRACES OF("PLEASANT") STIMULI WHICH IT WANTS TO APPROACH AND MEMORY TRACES OF ("UNPLEASANT")STIMULI WHICH IT WANTS TO AVOID. IN "HEALTHY" SYSTEMS THE RESULTING APPROACH /AVOIDANCE "BEHAVIOR" ALMOST CERTAINLY FORMS THE BASIS OF HOMEOSTASIS, THE MECHANISM WHICH ENSURES SYSTEM INTEGRITY (SURVIVAL) IN TIME .

THE AUTHORS TAKE THE POSITION THAT THE HUMAN BRAIN HARDWARE SYSTEM HAS A REMARKABLE FUNCTIONAL RESEMBLANCE TO THE INTERNET HARDWARE SYSTEM WHICH NOW SPANS OUR GLOBE. THEY BELIEVE THAT THIS RESEMBLANCE IS SUCH THAT IT CAN BE LOGICALLY DEFENDED THAT AN INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE SYSTEM, A GLOBAL MIND, WILL EQUALLY MIRACULOUSLY EMERGE FROM IT IN A WAY WHICH MAY BE COMPARABLE WITH THE MIRACULOUS EMERGENCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL HUMAN MIND FROM THE INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BRAIN.

WHEN CONSIDERING THE GLOBAL MIND WE MAY CONTEMPLATE THAT SIMILAR PROCESSES AS WE HAVE DESCRIBED HERE UNDER LEARNING MAY PLAY A ROLE IN ITS DEVELOPMENT.

ONE THING TO CONSIDER IS THAT "MEMORY TRACE COMPLEXITY" IN A SINGLE HUMAN NERVE CELL IS ALTOGETHER OF A DIFFERENT ORDER THEN MEMORY TRACE COMPLEXITY IN THE HUMAN MIND AND THAT A COMPARABLE QUANTUM LEAP MUST PROBABLY APPLY TO MEMORY TRACE COMPLEXITY IN THE GLOBAL MIND . THE GLOBAL MIND COULD PERHAPS ROUTINELY PARTLY OPERATE ON ADVANCED STRATEGIC GAME PROGRAMS OF WHICH e.g. THE SOFTWARE IN THE WOPR COMPUTER IN THE MOVIE "WAR GAMES" WOULD IN COMPARISON BE A PRIMITIVE EXAMPLE.

OF COURSE THE OBJECT WOULD STILL BE : TO WIN THE GAME . . .
