How Does Consciousness Overcome Combinatorial Complexity?
Mind is a complex information-processing mechanism which causes consciousness—the processed information content of mind. Models are the basic units of information processed in the mind. Comparison is one of the operations that causes consciousness. When we compare two models, the problem of combinatorial complexity (C.C.) arises. In this paper, we describe the way our mind overcomes the difficulty of C.C. and its consequences.
