Computer Obsession

Although artificial intelligence and technology, in general, are very important human achievements, I think our society is obsessed with computers. How is it possible that some scientists believe that we can compare our brain to a computer? Why not comparing our brain to an airplane or a fancy car? 

We have to understand that we as human beings are limited in what we can create. Our understanding of the world is limited as well. I think it is very dangerous to compare ourselves to machines. We are much more complex than any technology available as I believe we also have a spirit.
