To think

What does it mean ‘to think’? It’s the 7th of November 2014, 3:34pm and I find myself sitting on a bench in Al Wahda mall in Abu Dhabi and, talking to myself, I say that I am thinking. If thinking is merely electrical signals between neurons then, similarly, a computer processor can be said that it is thinking when its transistors process electrical impulses. We built them ‘in our own image’ because that was the only way we knew how; what if the same applies to nature within which we evolved?
