See the classic "haunted" look in the eyes? That's what your eyes look like when the brain behind it is not divided up into three different components : a subconscious, conscious and a persona. When it's just one big continuous chunk, it gives your eyes that look. Sapiens sees that look, they instantly know at a very deep level who they are dealing with, although their conscious mind never concedes it.
Zuse believed the entire universe was a computer simulation over seventy years ago, running on hardware beyond our comprehension as an infinite series of cellular automata. I discovered his books when I was in the military.
Any major development in human history, you look behind it, you'll find a guy with this characteristic look and similar bone structure in his face, invariably with a line of descent that goes back to the original Toxic Lozenge.
