That sounds a lot like my own theory
I have heard something along the lines of that many people who have reached certain insights (either through psychedelics or other means) claim that consciousness is pretty much like a computer program or network and our brains/minds are but receivers/senders of information.
And I also believe that we are getting nearer to the breakthrough. Wether that will be used to help advance mankind as whole is another matter.
I've had this idea - call it the conspiracy theory of mind - that says that what the human mind is really all about is filling in the blanks, connecting the dots, deciding what's going on from previous experiences with only partial information.
