Can the human mind be considered an infinite number of conditional constructions if and else?

Answer from: Igor Lazarev:

Of course not, the human mind cannot be considered an infinite number of conditional if and else constructions:
- Firstly, because the human brain is a neural network, not a computer. You can google artificial neural networks.
- Secondly, because a neural network consists of neurons or their analogs, and these are not at all logical elements (or their program analogues - the if and else constructs) which form the processor and other computer components.
- Third, how do you imagine "an infinite number of if and else conditional constructs"? Hardware is fundamentally impossible. Software recursion? So no, recursion only works until the stack overflow.

If we abstract from some technical details, then yes, this may be a good analogy. For example the way a person walks in general can be described by if:else depending on the surface for example.

But actually there will be a lot of questions to this idea after we change the example to something more complicated. If you take dreams or deja vu, it clearly ceases to be like many if:else.

Ask the questions that interest you, even if they seem silly, childish, strange, funny, embarrassing, uncomfortable, or abstruse.
