In science:

Thus if one sets in place the activity of retaining in memory a certain sequence of stimuli, then this activity can persist undiminished while the central processor is engaged in another task.
Quantum theory and the role of mind in nature
Centralized algorithms are fine in small or tethered network environments; but in large untethered networks, they incur high communication cost and may not be scalable; they depend on the availability and robustness of a central processor and have a single point of failure.
