Dreams.

The brain has the ability to create worlds so real that upon waking it takes a moment to sort out whether you are now awake... or are you now asleep, and were then awake? The accurate recreation of visceral experiences -- fear, flight, falling, orgasm -- are they reactions of the limbic system to thoughts, sights and sounds created by the brain, or vice versa? Does the limbic system fire and the brain throws together a story to coincide?

And to think: this is possible using but a small portion of our brain's power. What are we truly capable of?
