Quantum computing goes a step further by looking at all probable solutions to a given problem and homing in immediately at the most probable solution literally in one clock cycle. But even those systems only know what inputs they're given and are built to solve specific classes of problems. It will be interesting to see how the consciousness and choices made by subatomic particles will affect these devices, not to mention the interaction of our consciousness with these systems!
For example, Dean Radon describes an experiment where a very seasoned remote viewer actually altered the physical processes within cesium atoms to slow down the Stanford University atomic clock. Until science gets to an understanding that everything is conscious (as Seth so well describes) they will keep building machines and missing the whole point of fundamental science. Seth later talks about the development of "Dream Art Scientists" and how this development will change the philosophical underpinnings of science and its future development.
“The reasoning mind represents human mental activity in a space and time context, as mentioned earlier.
“Again, it is involved with the trial-and-error method. It sets up hypotheses, and its very existence is dependent upon a lack of available knowledge – knowledge that it seeks to discover.”
