This question appears to be off-topic because it is about filling water jugs and not psychology, neuroscience, or cognitive science.

is this a homework question? I am not really sure how this is on-topic for this site. I would vote to close but my vote is binding, so I'll let the community decide.

comment Why do scientists say brains are faster than computers?
I have undeleted this post because it had one other undelete vote, and I think it's a good answer to this question. It's a less-detailed but more-cited version of anongoodnurse's answer. Don't be too swayed by a single downvote :-) If you do really want this deleted please use the flag link on this answer and ask for us to delete it again. Also, +1 for a good answer.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about philosophy and not cognitive science.
