If we used a logic automata type of scheme, then mind and brain would be
the same thing. Each bit would be an atomic configuration, and programs
would be atomic assemblies. Maybe this makes it easier to see why forms and
functions are not the same as sensory experiences, as no pile of logic
automata would inspire feelings, flavors, thoughts, etc. but would output
behaviors consistent with our expectations for those experiences.
