You could see it as a backup system that kicks in when everything else
fails. It tries to create working hypothesis all the time, about the things
outside the known facts, personal experience and especially about incidents
that do not fit into the known facts. Not enough specification to construct
a chip, I know...

It also acts as a buffer between reality and emotions like fear, anger,
happyness and grief. Oh, I think you should first look what this emotional
stuff is. Where it does come from, how it works, which parts of the human
mind we are talking about. Ahem, you know emotions, do you?
