So the brain is pretty awesome, especially as far as organs go. What's the spleen ever done? Nothing for nobody. The brain, on the other hand, is like some squishy workhorse. You like all that breathing you're doing? You can thank a cluster of 600 neurons in the preBotzinger Complex region of your brain for telling your lungs to do their business. It's the limbic system in your brain that releases dopamine when you do something that helps ensure your survival or the continuation of the species, like eating and having sex. We don't quite know how it does it yet, but the brain also generates the sense of self that is making me feel like I'm the only million dollar baby on the planet who could string together so ingeniously all of the previous words you've just read.
So it would seem, then, that our own brains are even smarter than we are, which is weird, because they're our brains.
