Perhaps this quote holds the key:
'A man wanted to know about mind, not in nature, but in his private, large computer. He asked it, "Do you compute that you will ever think like a human being?" The machine then set to work to analyze its own computational habits.
Finally, the machine printed its answer on a piece of paper, as such machines do. The man ran to get the answer and found, neatly typed, the words: THAT REMINDS ME OF A STORY.' (Gregory Bateson)
