However, it still takes a human to run a computer. • There is no analogy to conscience or intuition in a computer. Computers are not actually “alive”, and they cannot have “free will”, ethics or true intuition, though efforts in artificial intelligence try to approximate these uniquely human skills, by plugging in millions of case examples into its memory. • We are MORE than computers, because we have SOULS, whose scientifically core feature is a FREE WILL—the ability to make autonomous decisions.

It is any kind of data we store in ourselves— our ideas, beliefs, values, life history, education, experiences, and the way that data is organized. There are only two ways to organize the data in us that composes the details of our lives—a Right-brained way and a Left-brained way. 37 These are two “styles” the brain uses to organize data.
