At one with the universe

Do Androids dream of electric sheep? Colin Tudge in London examines definitions of consciousness and artificial intelligence.

Is the brain simply a computer, and is consciousness merely the feeling we get when we think? Or is consciousness a primary component of the universe, which the brain can latch on to, like a radio receiver?
