Yes this is much the way I think of it. Computers transmit signals through electricity to determine what they should do, human brains & nerves transmit signals using chemical reactions. Yes they can only do things that they've been programmed to do (including being programmed to learn new things), but who here instinctively knew how to read and write without being taught? It's a fun little subject
