Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In a sense the hardware, software analogy is only true at the extremes, that is, basic brain architecture is hardware, and basic structural mythology is software.. but the living reality, as you say, is the messy middle when everything modifies everything.

I am happy enough if they would recall a little the basic sociological aspects of the pshychology-effect in the pattern of learning which modifies the physical driving. Not that most of the people there understand any of it.. most of them fear a computer if it does not use Exce or the statistics universal program (not named here to avoid a publicity stunt).

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
