If we were microscopic and inside a live brain, we’d see a large network of neurons.  From that vantage point, it would be tough for us to understand how what was going on in that network related to the outside world.

I wonder if the universe we see from our tiny spec is similar.  Not that we’re inside a big brain, but that the universe isn’t really what it seems to be from where we sit.
