On the essence of mind

J. R. Searle talked about human mind as a natural property of the human brain. I have been thinking if a system with a certain degree of complexity and flow of information through it would "cross the line" and became an intelligent bean. I have read some papers on complex networks and heard of something called "collective intelligence". All this seems to be linked. Is our mind a manifestation of the collective intelligence of a very complex (in fact, chaotic) population of neurons and organs? Could then it is simulated using A Life, complex network models, fractals...?
