We still seem to be in the infancy stage of understanding how the human brain works. Scientists who have physically examined human brains have stated that from the examine itself, the brain shouldn't be able t to do what it does. That is, consciousness, self-awareness, etc., can't be explained on a physical level.

So what is really going on in our brains? How do we "think", and rationalize things? Why can't other animals "think"? Why are we so special, and why do ONLY us have a different part of the brain that makes us unique?

Quite simply: no, because "fully understanding" isn't how science works :p . Every time we answer a question we have about the human brain, that answer is going to raise new questions!

Yes, good point. I firmly believe that the human brain is a organic quantum computer and "quantum strangeness" helps give rise to the fascinating abilities our brains are capable of. We just can't explain how. lol

Entirely possible - although, I'll be interested to see if we ever find any evidence to confirm or refute this!

There is still much to be discovered regarding Quantum theory. It is very interesting!! Google the "Double Slit Experiment". It's trippy!!
