According to a study published in Nature's Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain - with the electrical firing between brain cells 'mirrored' by the shape of expanding galaxies.
The results of a computer simulation suggest that "natural growth dynamics" - the way that systems evolve - are the same for different kinds of networks - whether its the internet, the human brain or the universe as a whole.
Because it’s mr10k’s religion (I mean assertion).
Purplemer How do you know the universe does not think.

For brain function, you need a signal that can efficiently carry information from neurone to neurone. But the Universe is so large, even the fastest of signals, Electromagnetic signals, are not fast enough to do the job. So you may have neurones, but no signals or information transfer. If the Universe is a big brain, then this big brain is dead.
If we could see the whole, then look back on this tiny part of it, it could be a forehead-slapping moment - "Oh yeah.....I SEE now...."
I've seen threads by multiple members this past year say that very same thing. Where is their pat on the back!? Oh no, I get. It doesn't count unless a scientist confirms it or theorizes it, right?
