Computers play a huge part in society these days. People either have their phone, PDA, or a laptop on them at most times. These are all computers in some way and people tend to form a relationship or an obsession with them. It’s interesting that we form this relationship or obsession with something that is so similar to us. If you think about it computers are a lot like the human body. In this essay I will tell you about how computers and humans are very similar. Humans have all these different parts working together to keep you alive and functioning. Computers work the same way having multiple pieces jammed into a single unit all working together to function properly. These multiple pieces are: the Motherboard, Central Processing Unit, Graphics Processing Unit, Fans, Mouse, Monitor, Hard Drive, Rapid Storage Memory (RAM) Card, Wiring, Case, Keyboard, and Power Supply. The Motherboard of a computer acts almost as the nervous system of the human body. As the brain thinks and tells actions it routes through the nervous system to perform the action. The motherboard connects every piece of the computer together and routes all information to its desired location intended. The Central Processing Unit, also known as the CPU, is relative to the brain of a person. The brain commands the body to do actions and processes information. Without the CPU in the computer, it could not function at all. The CPU processes all information and sends it through the motherboard to the proper location. The Monitor acts as the head of the body. The head contains the facial features and stores the brain at the top. Though the CPU does not reside in the monitor, the monitor does contain the face. The face is projected from the head.

The power supply does not connect everything through the wires like the heart and veins do but it does function the same as the heart. The power supply produces the necessary amounts of voltage to each part of the system to let each part function. Finally the Case that is similar to the body. The body is one single unit that holds all the functioning pieces inside of it. The computer case holds all the parts except for the extruding parts just like the human body, for example: the head. The case comes in many shapes and forms just like people. Humans and computers are similar in many ways. The only major difference between us and computers is we have a conscious. If it wasn’t for a conscious, they could probably become very much alive as we are, or as we see in movies.
