The Whole World
One neurone – nothing.
Two neurones – nothing.
A hundred billion neurones in a network –
You have the whole world

I occasionally have a little awe and wonder to throw at consciousness. Our brain is a fabulous electric blancmange. Our consciousness is wondrous. It is great, every now and again, to stop and think about it.
That is amazing. A brain thinking about itself with the mechanisms for thought it possesses.
So little we understand – so much still to learn.
What is clear to me is that these 100 billion neurones, all strung together in a wondrous network, supported by hundreds of billions of glial cells, connected to a limited number of senses, perceiving a fraction of what is around us, are doing a fabulous job of creating both me and the universe!
Here’s to consciousness!!
