Our brain, much less our mind, is forever unknowable, our ultimate creative capacity, for all practical purposes, infinite. The human brain is, in fact, the most complex, highly organized entity in the known universe. Each of us contains, and transcends, every form of matter that has come together since time began: quarks, electrons, protons, neutrons, atoms, molecules, cells, organelles, organs, organ systems, and finally the mysterious organization of all of this into self-aware consciousness itself. 
–George Leonard

–Kazuaki Tanahashi

A mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels.
