the extended mind thesis seems relevant to this thread
In philosophy of mind, the extended mind thesis (EMT) says that the mind does not exclusively reside in the brain or even the body, but extends into the physical world.

Examples of such objects are written calculations, a diary, or a PC; in general, it concerns objects that store information.
