God has created within us an amazing mechanism equipped with the faculties of knowledge and memory. The brain is its hardware and the mind and intellect are like its software. We often take this mechanism for granted. Surgeons perform a brain transplant and become proud of their feat, but they do not stop to ponder how this amazing mechanism of the brain got created. There are still many areas where, despite all the progress in technology, computers cannot compare with the functioning of the human brain. For example, software engineers are still struggling with face-recognition technology, while humans can easily recognize people even after their looks change. Hence, we hear remarks such as, “O dear friend, it is nice meeting you after such a long time. You have changed so much since we last met.” This demonstrates that the human brain can identify faces even though they change over years, while computers cannot even perfectly recognize unchanged faces. At present, engineers are still struggling with scanner software that reads typed material flawlessly. In contrast, humans can perfectly understand even sketchy handwritings of others.
