Does thinking of our mind as a machine help us?

It is probably not news to you that your brain is the most advanced computer in the entire world. The amount of neural connections present in your brain surpass that of grains of sand which exist on Planet Earth. It is the most complex structure known in the entire Universe. It infers meaning, perceives sensory information and analyses faces through intricate physical characteristics that can change in form simply by moving one facial feature one centimetre to the left. It is such a funny thought isn't it? How far would one of my facial features have to move before I started to not look like myself anymore?

We are capable of the strangest thoughts. These are commodified by the anguish one can feel by the outrageous potential of predecessors that have felt the same exact thing. These philosophical inductions can induce fright, as it can leave us questioning our very existence and purpose. The point of this article isn't to shed a positive light on anything in particular. The point of this article is to maybe just reward yourself some time in the day to appreciate the complexities to which you are hardwired as a person.

It is strange to consider yourself as a machine. Despite this, it is becoming more and more plausible that machines and humans may not have any noticeable differences in the future. All ethical concerns aside, there is nothing that makes any emotion less valid than others. This leaves room for robots having the same human rights as humans, as we all experience the same world we co-habitate in.

What beings to pertain a huge amount of meaning though is how we perceive the emotions that run within us. Thinking of myself in the grand scheme of things, I find it useful to consider my emotions as another cog in the wheel that is my own mind. We can be prisoners to it, or we can be onlookers. This may be interpreted to mean that I am advocating a lack of emotions; but moreover I am advocating that you do not become a prisoner to them.
