TEDxBrainport - Bernardo Kastrup -- Computer, brains and logic

Interesting TED Talk - Bernardo Kastrup on how our brains generate a version of "reality" that may or may not be accurate.



TEDxBrainport - Bernardo Kastrup -- Computer, brains and logic
How real is reality? Are we all collectively cheating ourselves that the world that surrounds us is real? A bit like the movie "The Matrix" but without machines at the steering wheel. It's this mind-boggling thought that Kastrup leaves the audience with. Starting with the bivalent operation of computers -- thé instrument we use to investigate the working of our own brain -- via the definition of logic, Kastrup holds up a mirror that will keep a lot of us reflecting on reality and gives a new direction to what 'thinking out of the box' might mean.
