The human brain is the most complex system in the known universe. This system has developed according to the principles of evolution. Investigating the origins of the brain might lead to more comprehension of its functioning. Memory is the storage, retention and recall of information including past experiences, knowledge and thoughts. Most of the mainstream cognitive psychologists suggest that memory is a unitary entity of some sort. They assume that the apparent differences in manifestations of memory represent nothing more than different combinations and concatenations of particular cognitive processes, all operating within the bounds of one large memory. We look at a model of the mind that explains how the brain develops sensory consciousness. The model draws a lot of similarities to the parallel modeling of the computer hardware and operating system available worldwide.
