This is an extreme close-up photo of a living human brain. It may look gross to some of you, but think about how amazing this is. You have one of these things inside your head. A mass of organic matter that contains billions of connections that make you. Every memory, everything that ever was in your life is within this mass. So yes, it may look gross, but it’s pretty amazing
