"It is not yet known whether a computer has its own consciousness, and it would be hard to find out about this. When you walk into one of those great halls now built for the huge machines, and standing listening, it is easy to imagine that the faint, distant noises are the sound of thinking, and the turning of the spools gives them the look of wild creatures rolling their eyes in the effort to concentrate, choking with information. But real thinking, and dreaming, are other matters. On the other hand, the evidence of something like an unconscious, equivalent to ours, are (is) all around, in every mail (?). As extensions of the human brain, they (referring back to the beginning:computers - not to 'thinking and dreaming') have been constructed (..?.) the same property of error, spontaneous, uncontrolled, and rich in possibilities."
