How does an observer think

  1. May 21, 2012 #1
    If he can do only one thing at a time, so how is it possible for him to think on any thing.

    That is events are thought to happen in a series of freeze-frames.

    Or to say an observer has to be separate from these freeze-frame, to make thinking possible.

    Also how is the observer separate from these freeze-frame.

    That is the reason a machine does not think.

    For e.g how does one calculate 3 + 1.
