Animated movie created during an exchange semester at Staffordshire University. The part about how the brain not works is inspired by Der Mensch als Industriepalast by Fritz Kahn. Music by thefloorisnowlava.
The idea was to dispel misunderstandings about how the human brain works. It is not meant to actually explain the function of the brain, which would be quite difficult, since there are still a lot of questions to be answered in this area of science. It is about giving an idea, that the brain is not made up of smaller brains, but of simple parts, which alone are not that intelligent. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
I am aware of the fact, that not just the human brain works like this, but humans were a requirement for this terms project.
