The brain, just like a computer, accumulates and transforms information. So, may it be claimed that the brain is just a very complicated computer? The author would like to ensure the reader that this is not so- the answer is negative. The brain is not a computer. It is said that due to the fact that someone died, it ended his suffering. What does this mean? Suffering can end only when the sufferer is aware of this. If the brain was a computer, a man never found out that he had died. Awareness would die with it. Unless that the brain is not a computer.
