There has always been considerable interest among philosophers, psychologists, scientists, and common men in theorizing about the concept, the architecture, and the functioning of ‘mind.’ Here are some concepts and issues that we would ponder over:
1. What are the Mind (software) and Brain (hardware) dichotomy?
2. Can machines think?: Thinking Machine & Mechanical Thinking
3. What is Intelligence, Consciousness, Matter, Experience, and Intuition?
4. Senses, Mind, and Market5. Redefining Life and Cognition.
