i keep on pondering on this,
is that possible for brain to process or think 2 things at a time?

it seems that my brain is like single core,
process information using multiple registers but could only focus on one at a time.

i wonder how your brain works, maybe you are dual core or quad core?

but i just couldn't imagine how is it to process focus 2 ideas at a time.

well unimportando.
and on the other hand, well i dont concenrate on such stuff sorry. i can imagine being aware of two words being said, or with some concentration 3 being said at once weakly. of course one considers many things at all, for instance, vision, hearing, words noises and so on.

i guess i should give an example.

here the simple one,

to calculate 2 maths questions simultaneously.

to play mines bomb and calculate the total number of 9 boxes or calculate bomb counter simultaneously.

i guess human brain is not equip with parallel simultaneous processing feature.

maybe beings or consciousness that more superior that human got such feature.

or you tell me evolution could bring human to this feature?

Yes, the human being is fully multitasking. The proof is right there in front of your computer reading this paragraph. Smile

Your hands don't need to wait for your eyes to close in order close to move or touch something and neither do they get "interrupted". In other words, you can see, smell, move, and feel all at the same time; inherently this is how nature is.

Here's an example. A tailor using this old sewing machine.

Image

His legs will move the pedal while(simultaneous and parallel) his hands work on other things.

His mouth would probably be talking and his ears listening.

24 + 89 + 1 = ?

100 - 76 = ?

what i mean is, calculate simultaneously and got both answer at the same moment,

that is what i mean by could brain process or focus on 2 things, ideas at a time....

i don't mean repeat tasks that don't need focus...

HaHaAnonymous, it seems you didn't have a simd unit installed in your schooling?
Code:
movaps xmm0,[A]
paddq xmm0,[B]
paddq xmm0,[C]
A: dq 24,100
B: dq 89,-76
C: dq 1,0

HaHaAnonymous,

SIMD is a paradigm, not a peculiarity of a particular processing unit. Many strlen() implementations use bithacks in SIMDesque way.

HaHaAnonymous,

Are you kidding? I'm too. Wink

Paradigm is kinda a scientific word for simply an "idea".

AsmGuru62,

Canonically, object-oriented programming. Simula, Smalltalk and such.

Anyway, what's an object? It's subjective. Wink

HaHaAnonymous,

If I ever do have any concern about word's meaning, I refer to dictionaries. That's why I have a lot of them. Actually, they occupy whole bookshelf (and they occupy it firmly). Wink
