The last fifteen years have seen a growing agreement from a surprisingly wide spectrum of the academic landscape on the topic of how our minds work. Theories of perception from psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and machine learning are beginning to resolve into something that feels more unified than ever before, and surprisingly intuitive. The generative predictive model (as it is called by Andy Clark), posits that our brain’s primary function is to reduce surprise by developing an increasingly nuanced model of the world. It is constantly predicting the future (on multiple time scales), noticing incorrect predictions, and updating its model to explain away the difference.

The part of the central nervous system enclosed by the skull. Like its continuation the spinal cord, the brain starts life as a simple tube. But whereas the spinal cord retains this form throughout life, the brain grows into a complex system of bulges and folds.
At an early- stage of embryonic life, three bulbous swellings appear at the front end of the tube that is to form the central nervous system, and these develop into the three main divisions of the brain: the hind brain, the mid brain, and the fore brain.
