Does brain structure hint at nature of problem solving?

I notice that at any point in my life I am capable on reentering the behavior patterns of any previous point in my life if I focus and relax, and that I use this same process of recollecting previous patterns of my life to subsume new patterns empathetically from other people.  While this isn’t news at all, it’s awesome because it means that (at least per my subjective perception) my brain’s functional architecture reflects the fact that spatial and temporal distance are fundamentally analogous concepts. The brain exploits the symmetry for ease of processing! Good class structure -> better and more extendable app/framework! It’s as if it models those fundamental relationships into its application-specific architecture!
I wonder what other hints to the structure of the universe you can figure out from the way the brain’s problem-solving structures are organized? (In general, I’m boggled by the idea that all computers/minds are actually just channeling the computing power of the larger quantum computer of the universe that animates their processing elements)
