Study Suggests Mental Processing Is Continuous, Unlike A Computer - SpaceDaily  The theory that the mind works like a computer, in a series of distinct stages, was an important steppingstone in cognitive science, but it has outlived its usefulness, concludes a new study. Instead, the mind should be thought of more as working the way biological organisms do: as a dynamic continuum, cascading through shades of grey. In this model, perception and cognition are mathematically described as a continuous trajectory through a high-dimensional mental space; the neural activation patterns flow back and forth to produce nonlinear, self-organized, emergent properties -- like a biological organism."

We are not," said Rumsfeld, who appeared with his top military commanders at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Still, General John Abizaid conceded to the panel that "there's a lot of work to be done" to be done" to break the resolve of a resilient and determined insurgency. "I believe there are more foreign fighters coming into Iraq than there were six months ago,"
