To me, it seems that intelligence is an ongoing process, supported by an infinite number of potential inputs, and your brain is just one part of the process. I think that your brain creates intelligence no more than your radio writes the music that comes out of it. Your brain, like the radio, is a filter through which some bits of the universe’s inputs are channeled. Intelligence – if that word has any meaning – is the full sequence of events that contribute to the intelligent outcome.

Consciousness is nothing but the tickle we get as the inputs pass through our filters.
